Corona testing

You do not need to get tested for covid-19. If you feel unwell you should stay at home.

Should I get tested for covid-19?

You do not need to take a test. If you feel unwell and experience newly-developed respiratory tract symptoms you should stay at home. You should also avoid contact with people who are at increased risk of becoming seriously ill.

Symptoms of respiratory tract infections can include headaches, blocked nose, fever, cough and sore throat.

You do not need to take a test, but if you decide to take a self-test at home, you should stay at home if you are feeling unwell irrespective of a positive or negative test result.

You can read more about testing for the coronavirus on Helsenorge's website.
