Corona (Covid-19) test

Testing and detecting infected and close contacts is an important part of limiting the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).

If you suspect that you are infected with the corona virus, have symptoms, or are in close contact with an infected person, you must book an appointment for a test via www.coronaprover.dk.

It is also important to keep in mind that the best way to prevent the spread of infection is to comply with the recommendations of the health authorities and the applicable restrictions. Stay home if you are sick, feeling lethargic or coughing. Keep distance, wash / spray hands often, wear bandage, air out and clean thoroughly.
