If you are a close contact to a corona-infected person

​The Danish Health Authority asks everyone who has been tested positive for coronavirus to contact persons that they have been in close contact with, so they too can be tested. The purpose is to stop the spread. 

 
If you have been in close contact with a person who is infected with coronavirus, you may also be infected. 

When are you a close contact?

You are considered a close contact if you:

  • live together with an infected person
  • have had direct physical contact (a hug, for example) with and infected person
  • have had unprotected and direct contact with secretion from an infected person (for example, you have been coughed on or have touched a used tissue)
  • have had close face-to-face contact within a distance of 1 metre for more than 15 minutes with an infected person (a conversation, for example)
  • have participated in the care of a corona-infected citizen/patient as a healthcare professional or similar and you did not use personal protective equipment. 
  • If people have followed the Danish Health Authority's advice about physical distancing, coughing etiquette and hygiene, very few will be categorised as a close contact. 
 
In other words, a close contact is the people you live with and a few colleagues and friends from whom it has not been possible to keep a distance. 


How to be tested

Your GP can refer you for a test.
When you have been referred, book an appointment as soon as possible on www.corona.dk

Note that you should book an appointment at specific intervals, and that one test will be enough for some people, whereas others need to be tested twice. Read more about this in the Danish Health Authority booklet:

Go to coronaprover.dk and follow the guidelines to arrange your appointment
