Get tested for COVID-19

Tests are still an important tool in fighting infection. In Copenhagen there are multiple options.

Get tested often

The authorities recommend that you get tested often. If you are going to work or school, then the recommendation is that you get tested once a week.

Which test should you choose?

PCR-test in the throat

The PCR-test is recommended when:

  • when you have symptoms of COVID-19
  • when you are a 'close contact' to a person who is infected

Quick-test in the nose

You should use a quick test when:

  • you show up to work or school
  • you are going to be with a person who is more at risk than others

You must always get a PCR-test if your quick test is positive.

  • Remember your yellow health card, face mask and to keep your distance.
  • Remember, that if you feel so ill that you need to speak with a doctor, then you should stay at home and call your own doctor or 1813. 
  • Remember, that the test result only provides a momentary glimpse.
