Information for other contacts of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19

NB: this information is important for you.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You are receiving this letter because you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Due to the nature of the contact, there is a small chance that you may have been infected with the virus. For this reason, it is vital that you comply with the fundamental rules and get tested. You can read more about this below.


If you are planning to visit someone or receive visitors yourself, please perform a self-test first, particularly if the people you are going to meet are at high risk due to illness or old age.

Get tested if you experience any symptoms

Keep a close eye on your health. If you develop any symptoms associated with COVID-19, 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

then you should take a self-test immediately, even if you have previously tested negative. If your symptoms persist or get worse, take another self-test. If your self-test comes back positive, please book an appointment for a test with the GGD at once to have your test result verified. Stay at home until you have received your test result.

If you have vulnerable family members, due to old age or illness, then please make an appointment at the GGD to get tested. You can do so by calling 0800 2035 or visiting
