Recommendations and instructions for the Covid-19 epidemic
Hvar Island’s Epidemiology Service carries out testing for the SARS-CoV-2 from nasal and oral samples. The molecular testing is done according to the RT-PCR method.
The tests are available for those who require proof of having been tested.
Testing is carried out every working day (Monday to Friday) at the Jelsa Health Centre (Dom zdravlja Jelsa), by appointment only: telephone +385 (0)91 151 2010.
The price of each test is 700 kn, for which a bill is issued on attendance. For test results in English, the cost is 823 kn.
The test results are sent out by post or e-mail, once the Institute of Public Health has received confirmation of the fee payment. (Pay at the Post Office or bank.) You can send the receipt via Viber or Whatsapp on +385 91 508 5969. If you pay straight away, the test results are sent out from Split within twenty-four hours. You may receive the emailed results the same day by the evening.
