You do not need to test for COVID-19 even if you experience respiratory symptoms - unless you are in the risk group.
If you are in the risk group and get symptoms of covid-19, you should take a self-test. If the self-test is negative but the symptoms persist, repeat the self-test daily for up to four days. Contact a doctor if you test positive or if symptoms worsen.
The doctor will make an overall assessment based on age, as well as other risk factors to decide whether treatment with Paxlovid is appropriate. Treatment should start as early as possible
You do not need to register a positive self-test.
