Many have begun questioning where testing for the coronavirus can be done within the Western Cape. While the government is only testing specific cases, private labs are offering testing for those willing to pay.

Currently, the province has 16 positive coronavirus cases, and here is where you can go for testing at designated Lancet Laboratories if you suspect you may be infected.

Please note: Doctors need to refer patients to a lab for the relevant testing. Patients are also required to wear a surgical mask before they enter to protect other patients and staff.
