5. Why, when and where can one be tested?
The purpose of screening is to :
- Rapidly isolate any sick person to prevent them from infecting others.
- Quarantine people with whom the sick person may have had close contact and who may have been infected.
This strategy aims to stem the outbreak of new cases and limit the epidemic's relapse during this period of gradual easing of measures.
If the population is not systematically screened at the onset of symptoms, there is a risk that we may have to revert to stricter containment and to a suspension of some activities or a reclosure of certain premises.
If you present any acute respiratory symptoms (coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath) with or without fever, with an impression of fever or muscle pain and/or a sudden loss of smell or taste, it is strongly recommended that you undergo a screening test by contacting one of the 5 sampling centres in the canton.
Assess your need to undergo a screening test
Before doing a screening, you can also choose to assess your risk level by doing a HUG Coronarisk test. Answer all the questions of the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) Coronarisk test (in French) as accurately as possible. The HUG will then advise you on the appropriate steps to take.
