Most people do not need to get tested if they have symptoms that could be COVID-19. But some do. You need to get tested if you work in healthcare or elderly care, live in a nursing home, or receive home care services.
If your test result shows that you have an ongoing infection caused by Covid-19, it is
important for you to stay home in order not to infect others. You must also follow the
Communicable Diseases Act (smittskyddslagen). What you must do is explained here.
If you have been in close contact with someone who has Covid-19, you must pay special
attention to any symptoms that you may have and see as few people as possible. If someone
you live with has Covid-19, you have an obligation to follow certain rules of conduct.
