Testing due to symptoms

Get tested if you experience symptoms, even if you are fully vaccinated.

Stay at home and register immediately for testing on My pages (Mínar síður) on Heilsuvera. If you do not have a Digital certificate, you can contact your local healthcare centre by telephone or contact the on call medical hotline 1700 or the Heilsuvera online chat. It is important that you conduct yourself as in isolation until you receive confirmation that you are not infected. You should not, under any circumstances, visit your healthcare centre, the LSH Emergency Unit or the Læknavaktin (out-of-hours medical assistance service) if you have symptoms.

Testing due to symptoms is free of charge, for tourists as well.
