How can I get tested?

With a prescription

If you have received a prescription from a medical professional, you can book an appointment with the following laboratories:

For children between the ages of 2 and 6 who have a prescription, the Medico-Social League, in collaboration with the National Health Laboratory (Laboratoire national de santé - LNS), offer PCR tests to detect COVID-19. Appointments can be made here.

For children under the age of 2, an appointment can be made at the Kannerklinik with a prescription via this link.

If you are not presenting COVID-19 symptoms and do not possess a medical prescription, laboratories offer COVID-19 tests at your own expense.

Large Scale Testing Invitation

Large Scale Testing (LST) was put into place not only to monitor the spread of the virus across the country, but also to allow flexibility and foresight when there is an increase in cases. This allows to break infection chains and to keep the infection rate low. Large Scale Testing allows for residents and cross border workers to get tested either by a PCR test (oral swab) or a serological test (blood sample). An invitation is sent either via post or e-mail with a personalized code, allowing for everyone to take part free of charge.

If you do present symptoms of COVID-19, do not wait to receive a LST letter. Contact a general practitioner for a prescription or visit the COVID-19 Consultation Centre (CCC).

Please note that serological tests are only available between Monday - Friday between 12p.m. and 3p.m.

From 3 May 2021, new serological tests called DBS ("Dry Blood Spot") will be performed directly at the LST drive-in stations in Mersch, Grevenmacher, Howald and Bascharage.

Please note that these serological tests will only be carried out from Monday to Friday from 7a.m. to 12p.m. 

Antigen self-tests

An antigen self-test can indicate a COVID-19 infection. This test is available on the open market and can be used by anyone. A list of tests approved in Luxembourg can be found on sante.lu.

Please refer to the package leaflet for the exact use of these tests. It is also recommended that you confirm your antigen self-test with a PCR test. Please contact your general practitioner in this regard.

In public schools across Luxembourg

In cooperation with the National Health Laboratory (Laboratoire national de santé - LNS) mobile intervention teams have been created, which are made up of health and administrative professionals to perform COVID-19 tests in schools where there have been indications of infection chains. If a child is tested positive and attended in-person classes, the mobile teams are dispatched on the 6th day after the original infection to detect any further spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Forms have already been sent out and filled out by parents, asking for important information such as consent and the phone number of the legal guardian to report the results.

The student can then choose between a mouth or nose swab on the day of the test. The results are then transmitted within 24 hours.
