PCR test after 8PM or result in < 24 hrs

Does anyone know where to do a PCR test after 8PM in or close to canton Zug? My working hours do not allow me to take the test at any other time since I work the three days before my travel from 6:30 to 19:30.

Another possibility would be to do the test on the day of traveling, however I did not seem to find a facility that provides the results in less that 24 hours.

Many thanks in advance for helping

Zurich airport (and yes, I know, not that near to Zug) will give you the result back 5 hours after the test were sent by courier.

AndreasClinic in Cham Zug. I know a guy, who claims to get his test sample collected there very late at night and ready before the next noon. Can't tell, if it is a regular services offered to everyone.

I can confirm this works well - used them multiple times pre 6am and had the results at the latest by 12:45 the same day.

Re: PCR test after 8PM or result in < 24 hrs

I made mixed experiences with ZRH airport... worst is here: https://www.englishforum.ch/daily-li...h-airport.html

Since then I actually used them two more times thanks to a lack of alternatives for the same reasons the OP has. Long story short: the mess up with the results was apparently an exception. What isnt an exception are the waiting times... went last week before the long weekend and had to wait from 20.00 till nearly 22.00...

Have used them several times now. All PCR tests came back 5 hours after the courier had left, all antigen tests came back within 30 minutes.


The queues are getting rather long now, though! Last time it took me an hour waiting.
