When should you be tested?

NOTE. Certain groups of people are currently prioritized for PCR test. The following group have first priority: People who are at increased risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 who experience symptoms.

You must get tested when:

  • You have symptoms of COVID-19 and are at particular risk at becoming seriously ill.
  • You have been in close contact with a person who is infected and are at particular risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19. Learn more about guidelines for close contacts here and find information about people at risk of serious illness here.

You must follow the same recommendations for preventing infection that other people must follow even though you are vaccinated against COVID-19 and/or have been infected within the last 12 weeks.

You may not show up at the hospital/health center, if:

  • You have COVID-19 symptoms (you must call if you want to book a test)
  • You have a positive antigen test/quick test (you must wait until you are well again and continue your quarantine until then)
