Do you have symptoms of coronavirus, or have you seen a potential patient and want to be tested? Or do you simply want to know if you are one of the many asymptomatic patients? As part of the massive virus screening strategy, nearly 3,000 fixed, mobile or drive collection centers are located in France in order to conduct virological tests (PCR) on the population. Consult our directory to find the medical biology laboratory, public or private, which is closest to you and can take care of you.
Be careful, however, watch carefully who these centers are for: the vast majority still today only accept patients with a prescription. You must therefore show signs of the disease or have been in contact with a person potentially infected with Covid-19. Other places, such as the bus set up in Nancy a week ago, carry out tests on all of the people who come to them, with or without symptoms.

In this directory, you will also find centers, with or without an appointment, reserved for caregivers or contact cases whose list has been drawn up by the CPAM (Primary Health Insurance Fund). Others state that they are able to accommodate children under 3, pregnant women or people with disabilities or the chronically ill.
Finally, some welcome patients directly on their premises, with reserved rooms, while others have set up a drive, therefore outdoors, so that people do not leave their vehicle during the test. Some of the samples can even be taken at home. We advise you to call the selected laboratory for more information.
The Ministry of Health had planned to perform 700,000 tests per week. In fact, the number of samples is much lower, "because the virus circulates very little," admitted Monday Olivier Véran.
