If you cannot do the coronavirus check-up, please contact the Coronavirus help line.

If you have coronavirus symptoms, ring the Helsinki Coronavirus helpline tel. 09 310 10024 (weekdays 7-16) and at other times to the Medical helpline, tel. 116 117

Helsinki Coronavirus helpline and the Medical helpline will refer you to a coronavirus test or to a corona health station.

The symptoms of a coronavirus infection

Everyone with symptoms of a coronavirus infection will be sent to tests. These symtoms are fever, cough, headache, nausea, diarrhoea, muscle pain, throat pain, a cold, shortness of breath and loss of sense of smell and taste.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) tests are made at the coronavirus testing points in Itäkeskus (Tallinnanaukio 1 B) and Kannelmäki (Kitarakuja 4, next to Kanneltalo, entrance via Sitratori) and at the drive-in testing points in Malmi and Meilahti. The test tells if you have the coronavirus infection. At the testing points, there is no antibody test, which would tell if you have had the infection already. 

All coronavirus patients are treated at Laakso and Malmi

All Helsinki patients needing medical assessment of their respiratory infection are referred to the Corona health stations. Patients with respiratory infection symptoms are not treated at other health stations.

If you haven’t completed the symptom questionnaire at omaolo.fi, ring the Helsinki Coronavirus helpline tel. 09 310 10024 (weekdays 7–16) and at other times the Medical helpline, tel. 116 117. You will get instructions on telephone.

At corona health stations, clients are treated in order of medical urgency. There is no appointments booking to the corona health stations.

In most cases the infection is healed within a week at home, without medical care. The symptoms can be eased with painkillers.
