On being tested

We recommend that you take a test if you have symptoms that could be COVID-19 or are at risk of being infected, for example because you are a close contact of someone infected with novel coronavirus.

The test is done by taking a mucous sample from the back of your throat with a special swab. 

You should be tested: 

  • If you have symptoms that could be COVID-19.
    Call your doctor fif you feel so ill that you would like a consultation or if your symptoms worry you. You should also call the doctor if it concern a child under the age of 2. However, if you have symptoms but do not feel so ill that you feel the need to consult your own doctor you can book a test at coronaprover.dk yourself.

    If you are the close contact of someone infected with novel coronavirus, please call tel. 70 20 02 33 (and press 2) to determine which two days you need to be tested.
