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.
PCR test or quick test?
Get a PCR test (in the throat) if:
• you have symptoms of COVID-19
• you are "close contact" to a person infected with new coronavirus
Get a quick test (in the nose) if:
• you physically show up at your workplace or place of education
• you have been close to a person who is infected - e.g. at your work, but you are not a "close contact"
• you must be with someone who is at increased risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19
• you can not avoid being with more people

Hvidovre Municipality has isolation facilities for corona-infected citizens who need to be isolated, ex if their home is so small that it is impossible to self-isolate from the rest of the household/family.
If your corona-test is positive or if you are close contact to an infected person, you will get a call from the Danish Agency for Patient Safety (Styrelsen for Patientsikkerhed), and they can offer you to stay at the isolation facilities, if you have difficulty isolating yourself in your own home.
