I have received a positive Corona test result - What should I do now?

A positive test result alone is NOT a medical emergency. As has been the case in previous months, people with positive PCR test results please proceed as follows:

  • After receiving confirmation of your positive test result, immediately go into home isolation (even without being contacted by the health department).
  • If your child is affected, also immediately report the infection to the nursery or school your child attends.
  • Compile a list of all contacts and their contact information and provide it to the health department when they contact you.
  • Already inform anyone with whom you have had close contact recently.
  • If you have complaints, contact your family doctor or, outside office hours, the medical on-call service at 116117.
  • In emergencies, e.g. with acute respiratory distress, call the ambulance service. Let them know when you call that you have a positive Corona test.

Online Form for travelers from risk areas
