Coronavirus: Tuesday’s free testing sites for eligible groups

editorial pcr tests are much more expensive than rapid tests

A total of 20 free rapid test sites for coronavirus for eligible groups will operate nationwide on Tuesday, the health ministry announced.

Free rapid testing for the general population has been scrapped, while unvaccinated employees, including those who only received the first dose of the Covid vaccine, must present a negative coronavirus test every 72 hours, carried out privately.

Eligible for a free rapid test at the mobile units are minors who do not currently have the option to be vaccinated against Covid-19 or whose parents/guardians do not consent to them being vaccinated as well as everyone who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, on presentation of a medical certificate.

Also eligible for free testing are people who are fully vaccinated against the virus, with the presentation of their vaccination card. Exempt from paying for a rapid test are also people who have contracted and recovered from the virus within the last 180 days.

In addition to the mentioned certificates, people must also carry identification documents such as ID card, passport etc.
