Two New Swab Test Centres To Open In Malta Next Week

As it stands, Malta currently has 4 swab test centres, specifically meant to test people for the COVID-19 virus that entered our shores a few months ago.

We currently have one at Pembroke, one at Luqa, one at Mater Dei Hospital (for health care professionals) and one in Xewkija, Gozo.

During a press conference held earlier today, Prime Minister Abela has announced that another 2 swab test centres will be up and running by next week.

What you need to know about getting tested. 

Swab tests are only done by appointment.

To book your swab test call the Public Health Helpline on 111 or +356 21324086 if you have a foreign number. The operators will take note of your personal details and you will be given an appointment to undergo this test closest to your place of residence.
What Instructions do I need to follow when attending the Testing Centre?
When attending your swab test, it is important that you use your own private car or motorcycle.
If you are being driven, you should sit at the back, behind the driver, using a face mask if you have one, with the windows open. If you are unable to attend using your own transport, other arrangements will be made. Please point this out whilst calling the helpline.
Please note that you CANNOT attend for the swab test using a taxi, bus or any car-sharing option. Take a clean tissue and your ID card as proof of identification.
