How and when will I get the test results?
PCR tests are estimated to be ready within 12-24 hours and rapid tests (antigen test) within 30 minutes. In northern Finland PCR test results may take up to 48 hours. Times may vary based on location, time of day and week, and logistics. Until you have received your test results, you must remain in quarantine-like conditions at home.
A positive antigen test must be confirmed by a PCR test. Registration for a separately paid PCR confirmation test is done by purchasing the test through the online form.
