If you suspect that you are infected with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, you should make an attempt to get a diagnosis or a test.
If you have serious symptoms – acute bronchitis or pneumonia – please contact the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians under the number 116117. If you are having difficulty breathing, call the emergency number. If you have cold symptoms, respiratory symptoms or problems with your sense of smell or taste, you should take a test. As a precaution, avoid contact with other people and wear an FFP2 mask. There is a chance that you might be infected with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 even if the test is negative. That is why it is recommended that anyone who has any symptoms, including mild cold symptoms, isolate themselves at home for at least five days.
You can report a positive rapid or PCR test result “online with the responsible public health office”. You can only report positive tests from certified testing centres, not self-tests that were carried out without supervision by a qualified person.
