If you think you have COVID-19 right now, you can order a self-test. You can test yourself at home or at a special sampling location. In Helsingborg, the sampling station is located at Pixlapiren and has a capacity of around 200 tests in a day.
The self-test is a PCR test and shows if you have the virus in your airways. It should be taken when you have a cough, sore throat, loss of smell and taste or any other symptoms that may be consistent with the virus.
You can only order the test for yourself or when you are a representative of a child under the age of 13. The test is free of charge.
