When do I need to get tested?
For many, it is unclear exactly when they should get tested - if you have a cold? A sore throat? What if you have had a tickling cough for 3 weeks? And what if you have already been vaccinated?
In order to clarify these situations, the government has developed a useful questionnaire that determines for your specific situation whether a test is necessary or not. You will even receive a test code immediately if necessary!
You can find this covid-check on this website.
