Private in home COVID testing

Hi,

Does anyone have a contact for private in home Covid testing? We were able to get in home testing with a private nurse/medic while in USA earlier in the year.

Looking for any contacts that provide the same here in Switzerland.

Geneva, Lausanne based.

Obviously I understand there is a price to pay for the service.


Appreciate any guidance!
Thanks.

Re: Private in home COVID testing

Sorry I can't be of much help, but maybe your regular doctor would know of such a service. Or you could call the Corona info line here in Switzerland and ask them (assuming that number actually gives you a real human to talk to).

+41 58 463 00 00
(6am–11pm)

I found that phone # on the following page, which may also have some other information that could help answer your question:

I haven't heard of that around here. Your next best alternative is probably the drive in service at the hospital in Yverdon. No need to exit the car and results in a few hours last I knew.

Re: Private in home COVID testing

That's really a shame if there isn't some kind of in-home testing available, as I'm sure there are plenty of elderly or handicapped people who can't leave their homes easily, and especially not when they're sick.

Re: Private in home COVID testing

In Geneva IMAD does offer tests at home for the elderly & handicaped dont know about canton Vaud where it would be the CMS.

Do you have a family doctor? Maybe they could help you.
