Fol­low this advice if you have symp­toms that fit the coronavirus

If you have even just mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus, stay at home and con­tact us elec­tron­i­cal­ly or by phone! Do not come to Soite’s unit with­out con­tact­ing us first.

You can con­tact us elec­tron­i­cal­ly by using the coro­n­avirus symp­tom check­er in the Omaolo ser­vice. If your symp­toms require it, your con­tact infor­ma­tion can be con­veyed to Soite or you can book a time your­self to the dri­ve-in test­ing site via the Omaolo ser­vice. The link for mak­ing a book­ing is offered after the symp­tom check-up has been filled in, if your symp­toms require a coro­n­avirus test.

Assess your symp­toms in the Omaolo service

Or call us:

You can also call us and a pro­fes­sion­al in Soite will then assess your need of care. If need­ed, we will ask you to come to our unit and for a coro­n­avirus test.
