Can I test my children?

According to the FOPH guidelines, children under 6 years of age need an official or medical prescription for the test. Without such a document, no test will be carried out or it must be paid for by the child. Also, children under the age of 16 must be tested in the company of a parent.

Further, our tests are done by nasopharyngeal swab (there are no spit tests or throat swab only tests). Therefore, we recommend contacting the paediatrician for children under 14 years of age.

When and how will I receive my test result?

PCR test

You will receive the test result of the PCR test within 2-3 working days by e-mail and positive results by telephone.

Rapid test

You will receive positive test results of the rapid test within 2 hours by telephone and negative results within 1 working day by telephone or e-mail. 

 

What do I do after I have taken the test?

After a corona test, quarantine applies. This is valid until the test result is available or as ordered by the FOPH. Please stay at home until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours, even if the test result is negative. See the FOPH's instructions on quarantine.

In the event of a positive result, you must isolate yourself and will be contacted by us and by the cantonal medical office by telephone. See the FOPH's instructions on isolation
