COVID-19 molecular PCR testing

Molecular test that identifies individuals potentially infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus at the time of testing. This polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) looks for viral RNA in a sample of secretions from the nose and throat (oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal swab).

A doctor's prescription is not required for COVID-19 PCR testing.
Due to a ministerial decree, a medical prescription is no longer required for the COVID-19 PCR test. If you have one, you must still bring it with you to your appointment. The duration of this measure is unspecified.
