Carrying out surface testing by antigen tests
Comprehensive testing will take place starting on 16th December 2020 until recalled. However, it will not be mandatory.
The course of surface testing by antigen tests
Testing will take place in the “Network of antigen sampling centres- AOC” in the already operating network of sampling points.
All persons who have public health insurance in the Czech Republic can participate.
Fire and rescue services and the Czech Army will help strengthen the capacities. There will also be a reservation system where citizens can book a date and see the occupancy of individual consumption points. This system will be connected to e-Request (eŽádanka). But you do not need it in advance. On the contrary, you fill in your data in the system, give Informed Consent (due to the processing of personal data) and the system will generate an eRequest for you.
Please note that in order to use the antigene testing point at your practice you find using our map, you have to be registered at that practice, since the practitioners/specialists involved haven't (yet) decided to make their practices/testing points accessible for unregistered patients the list of public sampling points is available at the MZCR website. You can find the same list on the Institute of Health Information and Statistics website, where you can also view the capacity of the Covid-19 testing points. In addition, Prague has its own portal, where you can book an appointment.
From December 17th you can also book your appointment on the phone line 1221. It is available on weekdays from 8 am to 7 pm and on weekends from 9 am to 4.30 pm. Hearing-impaired persons or foreigners who prefer a written form of communication can use the option of a transcribed call.
From January 1, 2021, all health service providers performing antigen testing are obliged to immediately report information on each POC antigen test result electronically to the Infectious Disease Information System (IDIS).
