Coronavirus testing will continue from June in 11 mobile locations around Estonia. In addition, samples will be taken in private sector healthcare firms and buses, which can be accessed on foot or by bicycle.

Testing will be continued in the same locations in Tartu, Narva, Haapsalu, Paide, Kuressaare, Kärdla, Viljandi, and Kohtla-Järve, the Health Board said.

The location for testing will change in three cities - Tallinn, Pärnu and Rakvere.

The testing done in tents of the parking lots of Tallinn University of Technology and Tallinn Song Festival Grounds will now be done in the offices of Synlab at Veerenni 53a and Medicum at Punane 61.

Synlab will also create testing capabilities in Pärnu Suur-Sepa family medical center and Rakvere clinic.

Testing will be closed in Jõgeva, where the least amount of referrals were given for coronavirus tests.

In addition to drive-through testing, people in Tartu, Viljandi, Narva, Kohtla-Järve, Haapsalu, and Paide can now line up between cars on foot or on bicycles.
