Since June, Thetis has been handling the COVID-19 testing of travellers, and everyone has been able to book a testing from the company, which has a test station in Tórshavn and at Vágar Airport.

Companies, both public and private, have also gotten their employees tested at Thetis. Earlier this month Thetis tested about 2.000 students and staff at the Glasir college in Tórshavn.

In the following weeks, Thetis will be sending out a unit to travel all over the country to conduct tests.
