Social servicesHealthResidents

On this website you will find instructions for how you should act if you have been infected with coronavirus.

Everybody with a positive test result will no longer be called; neither will they be placed in isolation. We strongly recommend that you avoid all contacts for at least five days.

How to act if I get sick?

If your symptoms are mild, stay at home and rest.

  • If your condition worsens and you cannot cope with the home-care instructions, call the infection helpline. The helpline serves on weekdays at 8:00-16, tel. 09 839 50070.
  • At other times, call Medical Helpline, tel. 116 117, if you cannot cope at home with your COVID-19 symptoms.
  • In life-threatening cases, call 112.

How to treat COVID-19 at home

The coronavirus disease ranges from asymptomatic to severe cases, that require hospitalization. Most people who are fully vaccinated manage with the disease at home.
