Tested positive for novel coronavirus

If your test comes back positive that means that you are indeed infected with novel coronavirus. You must immediately self-isolate to prevent infecting others – including the people you live with.

Regardless of whether you have symptoms or not, if you test positive, you must:

  1. Self-isolate immediately.
    You must isolate yourself at home until 48 hours after your symptoms are gone. 
    If you do not develop symptoms, you must remain isolated until 7 days after taking the test.
  2. Pay particular attention to hygiene and cleaning.
  3. Inform your close contact – i.e. anyone you might have infected so they can be tested. This is known as contact tracking.
    If you have tested positive for novel coronavirus, someone from Coronaopsporing will call you and assist  you in tracking down your close contacts. You can also call Coronaopsporing yourself on tel 32 32 05 11.

Please wear a face mask if you have to break your self-isolation, for example if you have to go to the hospital.
