Testing and contact tracing for COVID-19

The Public Health Agency recommends the regions to focus their testing and contact tracing on health and social care in order to protect those who are most at risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19.

If you are a patient receiving health care you may be requested to get tested by your doctor if a COVID-19 diagnosis is of importance to your treatment.

Some care users who are at risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19 may be recommended to get tested, e.g. people in residential care, or those who have home care services. This also applies to those who attend daily activities within social care.

If you are uncertain whether you should get tested, the health and social care staff will inform you what to do.

This applies to the general public
