Call your doctor and let him/her make arrangements for someone to come to your house to take a sample.  Do not go to the doc or Cruz Roja as you can spread the virus unnecessarily. In the meantime you can start compiling a list of who you have been in close contact with and where you have gone in the last 2 weeks. The authorities will want to know.

Excellent advice from Gamina.

If you do not have a regular doctor, call Hospital San Antonio for advice (and again, do not go in person if you have Covid symptoms).

Hector Espana the Chapala Expat Liaison stated early on that he would also help guide symptomatic people in need of testing.

I think there are different procedures depending on whether you use private care or government health care?

yes and the first thing to do is not go out and contaminate other people and stay in the house, take paracetamol and stay put for 2 weeks or contact a doctor if you have probelms breathing and quickly,,,so have a doctor on file. The testng is irrelevant you either have it or not and if you think you have it stay put until it goes away. There are two types of testins the nose throat thing that gives 30% false no and the blood test that will show if you have been exposed or not.

I have an Italian friend who got the virus in Italy in December, she just got tested this week as she showed symptoms again and the blood test came back negative which means that the immunity she gained in december was gone by june....so much for future vaccination...
