The notification comes in both the case of a positive and a negative result.
During the month, Muscovites received more than a million SMS messages with the results of the coronavirus test. They began to be sent from November 21 to everyone who passed tests for the determination of COVID-19 by PCR in city medical institutions. The service does not apply to private laboratories.
“More than a million SMS messages with the analysis results have already been received by Muscovites who have passed the PCR test for COVID-19. This applies to analyzes taken in medical organizations of the city health care system. We decided to initiate such mailings so that residents of the capital could receive results as quickly as possible and observe precautions, since not all citizens have yet managed to open access to their electronic medical records. The message will come both in the case of a positive and a negative result, ”said Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
If a person has confirmed COVID-19, then the message asks him to stay at home and observe the self-isolation regime. Doctors also contact him and tell about further actions. If the test result is negative, then it is simply recommended to continue to follow safety rules – wear a mask and gloves, maintain social distance.
Adult Muscovites can take a PCR test for coronavirus by appointment at one of the city’s 162 polyclinics. Citizens under the age of 18 can be tested in one of 45 children’s polyclinics. The test result will appear within three days in the electronic medical record.
Previously, the number of places for registration for PCR testing in city polyclinics was expanded by more than a thousand. To this end, treatment rooms have increased their opening hours.
In addition, vaccinations against COVID-19 are being carried out at 70 polyclinics in the capital. Citizens from risk groups who come into contact with a large number of people in connection with their professional activities can get vaccinated. At the moment, vaccination against coronavirus is available for employees of medical and educational organizations, regardless of their form of ownership, employees of city social services, employees of centers of public services, culture, trade, as well as the sphere of consumer services. All residents of the capital who have the priority right to be vaccinated against coronavirus were informed of this possibility.
