Self-isolation and voluntary out-of-home stays

If you are infected with novel coronavirus – or there is a change that you might have become infected – you must isolate yourself from others, including the people you live with. If you cannot self-isolate, you might be eligible for a voluntary out-of-home stay.

To self-isolate means:

  • To stay at home and not have contact with anyone else other than the people you live with.
  • To avoid close physical contact with other members of your household.
  • To pay particular attention to hygiene and cleaning.

If you are unable to self-isolate at home, for example if your home is very small or if you live with someone who is at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, your local municipality might offer you an out-of-home stay at a suitable facility. Call your municipality to learn more about your options.
