COVID-19 Testing

Fast, Friendly and Professional

We are currently only offering COVID-19 testing to those without symptoms. We do testing for both children and adults. Please book a separate appointment for each person. If you currently have symptoms, and need a COVID-19 test, we kindly ask that you contact one of the other test centers in Zürich.

We perform a consultation for each client before your test, during which a medical professional can address your individual situation and recommend which test to take. This consultation is included in the cost of the test. Exception: If you need the test for a trip, please find out in advance which test is required by the respective country.

Swiss COVID
Certificate

If you are tested with us for a COVID-Certificate, and the test is negative, you will receive your certificate via email with your test result.

There are however a few instances where a certicate may not be issued even in the event of a negative test. These are if:

  • you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.
  • you have been in close contact with a confirmed case.
  • the government pays for your test to visit a healthcare institution.
  • you need a PCR test to confirm the result of a Rapid Antigen Test.

 

Coverage of Costs

The government will cover the costs of your COVID-19 Test based on this criteria.

Rapid Antigen Tests

Rapid antigen tests are performed via a nasopharyngeal swab. The federal government of Switzerland covers the costs of Rapid Antigen Tests.

PCR Tests

PCR tests are performed via a nasopharyngeal swab. For children up to 12 years of age, the PCR test can also be performed with a saliva sample "spit test".

IMPORTANT: In order for the spit test to be as accurate as possible, please do not eat or drink anything for at least one hour before the test.

The federal government covers the costs of individual PCR tests in the following cases if:

  • you have symptoms.
  • you have been in close contact with a confirmed case.
  • you have been instructed by a cantonal authority or a doctor to have a test.

If you need a COVID-19 Test for a trip, you will have to cover the costs of this test yourself (160 CHF).  Payment must be made during your visit. We accept cash, Twint and all major debit and credit cards (except American Express).


 

Note about group size:

We test both children and adults. If you would like to come as a family for a test, this is no problem,  but we ask that you book a separate appointment for each person.

What to bring:

Please always bring your health insurance card or the details of your health insurance (insurance number, card number). We need this information even if your test will be free of charge. If you do not have Swiss health insurance,  please bring your identification card.
