Corona virus test
Order your appointment online
If you have symptoms of coronavirus or you suspect you may be infected, you may book an appointment online for corona test. You need electronic ID to log in. You may also call the doctor's office: +47 41 70 24 00.
You do not need to have a residential address in Indre Fosen to be tested. Everyone who stays in the municipality, e.g. tourists, can contact the doctor's office for testing.
Testing is carried out at the airway clinic at Rissa doctor's office, Årnsetveien 35, Rissa. Testing takes place mainly on weekdays during the doctor's office's opening hours. You have to make an appointment before you show up for testing.
When you have an appointment to take a coronal test, it is important that you stay in your car until you are called on your mobile. Once you have been called, enter the door of the respiratory clinic located at the transverse end of the building. Do not enter the reception or waiting room at the doctor's office when taking a coronal test.
You will get the test results within a few days. If you have a profile on helsenorge.no, you may check the results yourself. If not, you have to contact the doctor's office +47 41 70 24 00. In case of a positive result, you will be contacted by local health service.
Indre Fosen kommune is now planning to carry out vaccinations. Information about time an place will be updated on this website.
Priority target groups
In the beginning, there will not be enough vaccine for everyone who is recommended coronary vaccine. Based on advice from the National Institute of Public Health, the government has given the following priority, with the top priorities first:
- Residents in nursing homes and care homes
- Elderly over 85 years
- Elderly over 75 years and then those over 65 years
- Persons aged 18–64 with one or more specified diseases that they already have.
At present, health personnel are not given higher priority than these groups, but this can change if the infection pressure increases, and if the infection situation in the health institutions changes.
