Vantaa applies HUS’ (the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa) instructions for when and how one takes a COVID-19 test, as well as for taking a Coronavirus antigen home test.

People with mild symptoms should not go to laboratory testing, unless they belong to the coronavirus risk groups. The health-care testing capacity shall be targeted at those needing the test because of medical reasons, as well as to health-care units, care institutions, and housing units for those belonging to risk groups. Others can, if they wish, take a coronavirus home test.
