Due to the good attendance at the screening of the Vestfjörður Health Institute and the Icelandic genetic analysis, it has been possible to add a few hours. The screening is for asymptomatic individuals and is free. Individuals in quarantine or isolation must stay at home. Those who feel any symptoms should contact 450-4500 to get an appointment for sampling at the health institute.

Healthcare professionals take samples from both the nasopharynx and nasopharynx. The result of the analysis will be published on the helilovvera.is website and everyone who is found to be infected will be called.

You need to book an appointment on the Icelandic genetic analysis website, https://bokun.rannsokn.is/.

It is best to use electronic IDs, but you can also use social security numbers and phone numbers.

The southern part of Vestfjörður will be screened in the coming days or weeks.
