Due to the recent increase in Covid-19 infections and the growing demand for tests, a new testing station is set to open its doors in Luxembourg on Monday. 

After an extraordinary meeting of cabinet on Saturday afternoon, prime minister Xavier Bettel (DP) and health minister Paulette Lenert (LSAP), in a joint press conference, announced the opening of an additional coronavirus testing centre. 

A statement by the ministry of health on Sunday specified that the centre would open at noon on Monday and would be open every day, including weekends, from 10 am to 5 pm. The testing station, situated at 31 Boulevard Konrad Adenauer, in an annex of the former national library, offers walk-in tests without appointment, but only for patients who have a medical prescription. The ministry of health also reminded that children under the age of 6 should not get tested. 

In addition to this new location in Kirchberg, there are currently 7 other testing stations situated across Luxembourg.
