Your Health

If you are eligible for GESY (The General Healthcare System), you should make sure you are registered with a doctor so you know whom to contact if you get sick. If you are an international student from a country outside the EU, and you fall ill, you should contact a doctor covered by your medical insurance plan.

The local government coronavirus hotline can be reached at tel. no 1420. Anyone who suspects that they have the coronavirus should call this number. If symptoms are not serious, you should contact your personal doctor.
