Information for contacts of someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus

NB: this information is important for you.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. There is a chance that you may have been infected with the coronavirus. For this reason, it is vital that you comply with the fundamental rules and get tested. You can read more about this below.

Get tested if you experience any symptoms

Keep an especially close eye on your health. If you develop any coronavirus-related symptoms, such as:

  • cold-like symptoms (nasal congestion, a runny nose, sneezing, a sore throat)
  • coughing
  • tightness of the chest or shortness of breath
  • a temperature or fever
  • sudden loss of smell and/or taste

take a self-test at once, even if you have previously tested negative or are experiencing symptoms again. You can usually take a self-test to check if you have been infected with the coronavirus. In some cases, we recommended that you go to the GGD to get tested. Please follow this link to find out if this applies to you. You can make an appointment for a GGD test by calling 0800-1202 or visiting

Contact with vulnerable persons

Avoid contact with vulnerable persons if you can. Do not contact vulnerable persons until the 10th day after your contact with the person who has tested positive for the coronavirus. If such contact is unavoidable, you should keep your distance as much as possible.

On the whole, we recommend that if you are planning to visit vulnerable persons (such as the sick or the elderly), you take a self-test first.
