HOW IT WORKS

The monitoring at Turin Airport, accessible at a cost of € 30, is carried out through a Covid-19 IgG / IgM serological test: the device, registered at the Ministry of Health, following the collection of a drop of blood, allows rapid detection and simultaneous with anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies of class G and M, providing timely results on one's health status.

In the event of a positive result, passengers will be immediately given a nasopharyngeal molecular swab at the airport for free.

Thanks to a special agreement, signed between ASL City of Turin, Air Medical and Turin Airport, all data collected by the Covid Test Point will be made available to the health authorities and used for statistical purposes, to understand and monitor the progress of development of the Covid-19 epidemic.

Air Medical also offers non-passengers the opportunity to carry out the serological test and swab for a fee, by appointment.
