The City of Luxembourg is extending the distribution of vouchers for free tests until 18 October, seeing as they will need to be paid for starting from 15 September in the country.

On the eve of the end of the large-scale testing and therefore of free tests without registration, the City of Luxembourg announces an alternative. It is extending the distribution of vouchers for rapid antigen tests until 18 October 2021. A way to access places and events under CovidCheck for those who are neither vaccinated nor recovered from Covid-19.

Vouchers can be collected by restaurant owners, cafes and customers from Monday to Friday from 9am to 12pm and 2pm to 5pm at the reception of the Town Hall, Place Guillaume II, and at the "Rocade" administrative building at 3, rue du Laboratoire.

Vouchers are also available at 70, Grand-Rue from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm and on Sundays and public holidays between 10am and 2pm. After collecting them, anyone can be tested in one of the 13 dedicated pharmacies (Belair, Lugen, Cèdre, Cloche d'Or, Cygne, Liberté, Gasperich, Ginkgo, Globe, Goedert, Hamilius, Hübscher and Thill-Bonnevoie), in the central building of the centre hospitalier de Luxembourg (CHL) or at the certification centre for antigen tests at 70, Grand-Rue.
