The test centre has been set up to take the pressure off GPs. The amended test strategy (from 22/10/2020 until 23/11/2020) meant that for a limited time only people with symptoms could be tested. From 23/11/2020, inhabitants of Ghent who do not show any Covid-19 symptoms, who had a high risk contact or have come back from a red zone can once again go to the test centre. The test needs to be administered on day 7 counting from the day after the high risk contact or the day of your return to Belgium.
Do you feel ill? Then you always have to contact your GP.
