Saliva test

Saliva test

Last update: 15/06/2021

This is a levy.

Instead of looking for the virus in the nasopharynx as usual, a saliva sample is used.

This less invasive technique is mainly used for the youngest.

The saliva test has the advantage of being more comfortable since it is not a nasopharyngeal sample.

For children under 12 years of age and persons with a medical contraindication to nasopharyngeal swabbing.

It is recommended for testing low-risk contact cases in children who reside in Monaco or attend primary school and college there.

NO, this test does not require a prescription.
