In the absence of symptoms, an examination is performed on the household members of a verified patient or those defined in an epidemiological interview who were in close contact and exposure to a verified patient. Other reasons, resulting from unique situations, can be found on the Ministry of Health website.
The Home Front Command emphasizes that there are currently 3 types of complexes for testing: complexes that only receive subjects with a referral from the HMO or epidemiological questioning, complexes that perform tests subject to referral from epidemiological questioning only and test complexes open to everyone without referral, in places with high morbidity rates. Some of the complexes can be reached with a vehicle to perform the test and some on foot.
In view of the situation in the Home Front Command, they emphasize that in the coming days until October 3, tests will be held in several centers where it will be possible to receive about 20,000 citizens. Citizens who wish to perform a test are first asked to contact the HMO center to coordinate the test. The cashier will direct the subject to the available test point closest to the place of residence. If the examinee is unable to reach one of the complexes, an examination team will be sent to his home.
Upon arrival, you must be equipped with an oral mask and identification means, which include an ID card and a HMO card. Anyone who has been tested in Corona, due to close contact with a patient or due to suspicion of morbidity in Corona, is required to observe the isolation rules even during the examination, and remain in isolation until the end of the reason for home isolation according to the guidelines. The test results are provided to the subjects by the HMO. The results are usually delivered within 48 hours, but the Home Front Command indicates that there may be delays due to loads in the laboratories.
In the event of a positive result, the fund representative will contact the subject as soon as possible. If the result is positive and the fund has not contacted you – contact the fund center. A decision on transfer to a motel or hospitalization will be made by a representative of the fund, depending on the patient’s medical and personal condition.
Those who are required for isolation even before receiving the referral for the test, must complete the isolation period to the end, even if the test came out negative.
