Receive test results by email
So people without smartphones and children can also take advantage of the gargle test facility, it is possible to register up to ten people on one user account (myNovatium).
Each (registered) person with a residence or temporary address (address of accommodation or place of work) in Tyrol is entitled to three PCR gargle tests per week.
It is possible to take one test per person within a 24 hour period. If a person registers more than once, he or she can still only collect the maximum number of tests once.
If six tests (twice the weekly quota) are collected but no gargle test is recorded, the respective persons cannot obtain any further tests - until at least three tests have been performed and submitted.
If a PCR mouth rinse/gargle test result is positive, details will be forwarded immediately to the local authorities. The affected person cannot perform or submit a PCR gargle test for the next 14 days.
The PCR gargle tests are picked up from all locations at least once a day at around 10 a.m. for evaluation. The actual collection time and frequency may vary depending on the location and opening hours (e.g. Sunday).
