Fill in the symptom questionnaire or ring the Coronavirus help line
The coronavirus questionnaire is located at omaolo.fi
On the Omaolo-service you will, on the grounds of your symptoms, get instructions on what to do. If needed, you can make an appointment to a coronavirus test at the service.
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.
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.
The coronavirus tests are being done at drive-in testing points in Stoa (Itäkeskus), 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 - call first
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.
Call first the Coronavirus helpline or the Medical helpline. 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.
