Press release: From Tuesday, 14 December 2021, some test stations that offer walk-in testing will now only offer testing by appointment.

There are several reasons for this. Firstly, it will help reduce queues at the test stations since there will be more predictability in terms of staffing, and each staff member will need less time per patient, as registration will have been completed in advance. Secondly, staff members who allocate test appointments or who perform the tests will have a better overview of their working days and more structure.

In order to accommodate residents who are less familiar with digital technology, walk-in services will remain open in some test locations. It will also be possible to book a test appointment by phone on the “corona phone-line”, if residents have trouble booking online. Adamstuen test centre is one of the locations that will only offer testing by appointment for the time-being.

For a complete list of test stations that offer testing by appointment only, see the web page for booking a Covid-19 test appointment.

These test stations offer only walk-in testing:

  • Mobile units and test stations at Grønlands torg (locations and opening hours are continuously updated on the City of Oslo’s website).
