Starting next Monday, 1st February, the HPA Saúde Group, in partnership with Unilabs, will provide another testing station for COVID-19, this time at Hospital Particular do Algarve | Gambelas, in Faro.
Tests can be performed by RT-PCR (swab) or Antigen (IgG and IgM antibodies through blood analysis), with results being available respectively between 24H and 48H and approximately 2H after testing (within opening hours).
It should also be noted that the serological tests for IgG and IgM Antigen antibodies should not be carried out in the acute phase of the infection, as they may give a false-negative result.
This fixed station, with walking access (walk-thru) will operate daily, from Monday to Sunday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
Anyone wishing to opt for the drive-thru system, without needing to leave their vehicle to take the test, can do it in Portimão at the Fairs and Exhibitions Park (Parque de Feiras e Exposições), also from Monday to Sunday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
