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.
