If you have questions about the coronavirus, check NIPH's website

Do you suspect infection?
If you have symptoms of the disease (respiratory infection, fever, cough, chest pain or difficulty breathing) or have been with a person who has tested positive for the coronavirus - send a message on (at any time of day) or call your doctor during office hours, and the emergency room (legevakten) at 116117 at night. In order not to infect others, it is important that you send a message/ call first and not just show up.

Recently returned from a trip abroad?
Everyone travelling from abroad will be in quarantine for 10 days, regardless of whether or not they have symptoms. Even if you feel fine and are symptom free, we kindly ask you to NOT call emergency room (legevakten) to be tested for the coronavirus, just stay at home.

How do you prevent infection?
Good hand hygiene is important to limit infection. Wash your hands with soap and water and have antibac available if hand washing is not possible. Cough in the elbow or in paper. Discard the paper after use.
