About visits, cancellations and symptoms.



Read about vaccination against COVID-19

No access if you have symptoms:

Do NOT enter the hospital if you feel ill, or you have a sore throat, muscle pain, dry cough or fever, for example. You must have been free of symptoms for 48 hours.

Corona tests for patients

Patients for admission, procedures and check-ups will no longer be PCR-tested. However, we must continue to take care of our vulnerable patients and staff. Therefore the following patients must still take a PCR test:

  • ​Alle acute admissions over the age of 12, regardless of vaccination status
  • All patients over 12 expected to be admitted for more than 24 hours. Regardless of reason for admission and vaccination status
  • Co-admitted close relatives - regardless of vaccination status
Some departments with particularly vulnerable patients may also decide to have patients PCR tested in connection with certain examinations or treatments. The department will tell you if you have to be tested.

Visitors must have a valid corona passport
Patients are free to receive visitors at all hospitals. Visitors must be able to produce a valid corona passport. If you cannot do so upon request, you can be asked to leave the hospital.

This does not apply for patients, close relatives, children under 15 years of age and guardians.

However, special rules may apply at some departments. Ask a member of staff at your own, or your relative’s department if you are in doubt.

To obtain a valid corona passport you have to fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test. A negative test must be max 72 hours old (PCR-test) or 48 hours (rapid antigen-test).

Corona test before your visit
If you are a visitor or relative and have not been vaccinated or had corona, you have to be tested to produce a valid corona passport. A negative test may be at most 96 hours old (PCR) and 72 hours old (rapid test).

Requirement for face masks

Both staff, patients and visiotrs require a face mask when moving around the hospitals in places where there is public access. It is voluntary for children under the age of 12.

As a patient or visitor you will be asked to leave the hospital if you do not wear a face mask

The follow are excepted from the requirement for face mask:
  • ​Hospitalized patients
  • Patients in rehabilitation in the hospital
  • People who due to physical or mental reasons are excempted from wearing a face mask

Remember hygiene and keep your distance

It is still important to use hand disinfectant and keep a distance of two metres wherever possible. 

During your visit

You must follow these rules when you are at the hospital:
  • As a visitor you must be able to produce a valid corona passport. This does not apply for patients, children under the age of 15, close relatives and staff.
  • Wear a face mask when entering and moving around the hospital.
  • Use hand disinfectant when you arrive and when you leave the hospital​.
  • Keep distance from other people.
  • Keep at least one metre away from other people in the waiting room.
  • Follow all instructions from staff and on posters.

For patients/citizens with symptoms of coronavirus

  • If you have problems breathing, if your symptoms are getting worse, or if you have been ill for several days, ring your general practitioner (or 1813 outside opening hours).

It is important that you call first and that you do not show up at the waiting room, as you could infect others.
