Contact with an infected person

As a close or other contact to an infected person with COVID-19, testing is no longer recommended.

Updated: 17 March 2022

On 10 March, 2022, the Health Authority has updated the recommendations for who should be tested for COVID-19.

You are no longer recommended to be tested if you live with an infected person, or if you have had contact with an infected person in another context - what was previously called a close or other contact. This applies to both children and adults.

Neither close nor other contacts are recommended for testing, which is why you, as infected with COVID-19, do not need to notify your close and other contacts either.
