Opening of a rapid test centre in Crans-Montana
The Association des Communes de Crans-Montana (ACCM), the Summit Clinic in Crans-Montana and the Laboratoire Salamin in Sierre have joined forces to set up a rapid test centre at the Le Régent Congress Centre. Since December 18th, the drive-in at Le Régent will allow people to be tested in case of symptoms. You can get there by car, without having to get out or make an appointment; pedestrians can also come. The test centre also issues travel certificates for people leaving Switzerland.
The Covid test centre is located in the small car park to the east of the tennis hall of the Le Régent Congress Centre (rue du Bisse, 3963
Crans-Montana). It is open 7 days a week from 8 am to 6 pm. It has no reservation system as it is a drive-through. People cannot come out of their cars.
Tests are billed directly to the health insurance companies or, if necessary, to be paid on the spot (cash, card, Twint).
The ACCM is also in charge of setting up a Covid-Angels team. They will have the mission to inform and enforce the wearing of masks and social distances in places designated, directing customers and assisting with car park management.
