Corona info

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.

 

Quarantine after a high-risk contact

For vaccinated persons:

If you had your last injection (booster or basic vaccination) less than 5 months ago:

  • you do not have to go into quarantine;

  • you do not have to have a PCR test done.

If your last injection was more than 5 months ago (booster or basic vaccination):

  • you have to spend 10 days in quarantine;

  • you may leave the quarantine from day 4 on condition that you do a self-test every day until day 10;

  • you do not have to have a PCR test done

For non-vaccinated persons:

  • you have to spend 10 days in quarantine;

  • you can leave the quarantine from day 7 on condition that you do a self-test every day until day 10;

Isolation after infection with COVID-19

  • you have to spend 7 days in isolation;

  • you may leave isolation from day 7 provided that you no longer have any symptoms

  • you do not have to have a PCR test done afterwards
