If you test positive for covid-19

If your test result comes back positive (positiv or påvist), you are infected with covid-19 and must either remain in self-isolation or self-isolate immediately to prevent infecting others. You must also avoid close contact with other members of your household.

Regardless of whether you have any symptoms or not, if you test positive, you must:
  • Stay home and avoid contact with other people - also the people you live with as much as possible
  • Pay extra attention to hygiene and cleaning

When can I stop self-isolating?

1. I do not have any symptoms of covid-19

If you do not have any symptoms, you can stop self-isolating 4 days after taking a test.

2. I have mild symptoms of covid-19

Mild symptoms of covid-19 include such transient symptoms as a runny nose, ‘tickle’ in your throat, a few coughs, etc. You will not be feeling very ill.

If you only have mild symptoms of covid-19, you can stop self-isolating 4 days after you took a test. If your symptoms become more severe, you must continue self-isolating until you no longer have any severe symptoms.


3. I have severe symptoms of covid-19

Severe symptoms leave you feeling quite ill and include fever, persistent coughing, sneezing or difficulty breathing.

If you have had severe symptoms of covid-19, you can stop self-isolating once you no longer have any severe symptoms – but no sooner than 4 days after you took a test.
