  • If the test result is negative, you will receive a test confirmation from the pharmacy, which, if it is not older than 48 hours, is considered free testing for body-hugging service providers.
  • If the test result is positive, please go into self-quarantine and call 1450. The pharmacy will notify the health authorities.

"Corona tests are an important pillar of the strategy for combating the pandemic and can bring people back a piece of normality and freedom in many areas of daily life. It is very important to pharmacists to make the best possible contribution to this. Testing is an essential means of containing the pandemic, ”explains Ulrike Mursch-Edlmayr, President of the Austrian Chamber of Pharmacists.

The free tests can not only be used to “free yourself” for a visit to the hairdresser, but also to “free yourself” from quarantine after a trip. Some countries, including Germany, recognize antigen results for entry.
