Second smear centre opened in Tivoli

March 26th, 2020 | by

The crisis committees of the City and StädteRegion of Aachen have opened a second municipal smear centre in the Tivoli in Aachen. The first one is located in Eschweiler. Up to 600 citizens per day can now be tested there. The facility in Eschweiler has already been running since 4 March. Very important: “All people who want to be tested must first call the telephone hotline on 0241/5198-7500. You cannot simply come to the smear centre. And even with a doctor’s referral, you have to call the hotline beforehand,” explains Andreas Nowak, head of the municipal smear centre. Deaf people can send an e-mail to to get an appointment after testing.

Dr. Verena Bochat from the public health department of StädteRegion Aachen adds: “The two centres are intended to relieve doctors’ practices and hospitals of the burden of testing and to bundle information at the responsible public health department. Doctors’ surgeries and hospitals can thus concentrate more on treating patients, but can also continue testing themselves if need be”.
