Delivery of the occupational medicine services in the period of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus epidemic

Dear Clients,
in view of the announced epidemic situation related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus as well as due to a number of procedural and organisational restrictions, we would like to inform you that from 16 to 27 March 2020 we introduce the following changes in the delivery of the occupational medicine services:
  1. Preventive examinations will be performed only for persons with the expiry date of their certificates before 10 April 2020 and for persons referred for preliminary and control examinations who will be admitted for occupational medicine visit after a medical interview performed before entering the premises of a Medicover Centre.
  2. During this period, any paid examinations will not be available (such as the ones needed for e.g. firearms license, driving license, examinations of pupils and students).
  3. At some of our centres, including our partner facilities, due to the shortage of medical personnel and/or top-down decisions of local provincial occupational medicine centres it may be impossible to perform occupational medicine examinations in the nearest future. Please call the facility/centre each time before coming for your appointment and confirm the availability of the service. The contact details can be found on our website here:

At the same time, we would like to inform you that we are expecting a decision of the government shortly. It will specify the rules of providing occupational medicine examinations and tests in an epidemic situation.

At the press conference on 16 March 2020, Deputy Minister Janusz Cieszyński informed that the problems with occupational medicine will be solved in a rescue package for businesses which will be dealt with by the government on March 17th. Deputy Minister Janusz Cieszyński suggested that, among other things, the expiry dates in the occupational medicine certificates will be extended.

As soon as the government issues appropriate recommendations, we will adjust our occupational medicine procedures. We will also keep you informed about further developments.


At the moment, we would appreciate it if you could refer your employees to occupational medicine prevention examinations only in situations that are absolutely necessary.

We would appreciate it if these examinations are not attended either by persons who have returned from abroad in the last 14 days or have been staying in the region where the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is active, or individuals who are under quarantine, or any persons who are staying in Poland but have had contact with infected individuals or exhibit symptoms of respiratory tract infections (in particular higher body temperature, cough, rhinitis, dyspnoea, excessive sweating, chills, muscle pains, breathing difficulties, and general weakness).

We recommend that people at risk of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection should postpone their visits to later dates – and follow the guidelines as well as stay at home.
