Rapid Antigen Testing (ART) Program. Screening in pharmacies
This service is aimed at leisure monitors and participating children and young people between the ages of 10 and 40.
Starting Monday, July 19, we will be performing free rapid antigen testing (ART) on people who need to join a summer leisure activity, who are asymptomatic and who are not in close contact.
Who can participate in the screening?
Participating in the screening is voluntary and the group belonging to the field of summer educational leisure must show the pharmacist the e-mail sent by the General Directorate of Youth through the leisure entity or the document of the declaration. of self-responsibility.
When and how will I have access to the results?
The results of the TAR are obtained in approximately 15 minutes and the pharmacist will communicate the result to you. In addition, they will be included in the corresponding information system (TARCAT platform) of the Department of Health. You can check the results of your test in La Meva Salut, starting the next day.
