General Information:

  • 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).
