After you have been test­ed for the coronavirus

After the coro­n­avirus test you need to be in home quar­an­tine until the test
result has come back. The results come back on aver­age in 1–5 days. You can receive your test result from a coro­n­avirustest as a text mes­sage on you mobile phone, you can check the test result on the My Kan­ta Pages or you can con­tact your health care sta­tion to ask about the results.

If your coro­n­avirus test is pos­i­tive, Soite’s infec­tion pre­ven­tion unit will call you. 

If your health dete­ri­o­rates, call Soite’s com­mon emer­gency clin­ic, 116 117 (per­sons who have turned 16) or the pae­di­atric emer­gency clin­ic, 06 826 4444 (per­sons who have not turned 16). Please men­tion dur­ing the call that a coro­n­avirus test has been taken.

If you are diag­nosed with the coronavirus

If your coro­n­avirus test is pos­i­tive, Soite’s infec­tion pre­ven­tion unit will call you to dis­cuss fur­ther mea­sures. Soite’s infec­tion pre­ven­tion unit fol­lows up your health active­ly dur­ing the entire home iso­la­tion. The health sta­tus in per­sons who have COVID-19 can change rapid­ly. That is why it is impor­tant to fol­low up the symp­toms on a dai­ly basis.

The mobile appli­ca­tion Bud­dy Care is used to fol­low up your health

When you have been diag­nosed with COVID-19, the infec­tion pre­ven­tion unit in Soite gives you instruc­tions on how to install the Bud­dy Care app on your phone. The app is used to gath­er infor­ma­tion on how your symp­toms devel­op dur­ing the home iso­la­tion. If the thresh­old val­ues that health care pro­fes­sion­als have deter­mined are exceed­ed when it comes to your symp­toms, the per­son­nel at Soite’s infec­tion pre­ven­tion unit is noti­fied on their own pro­gram, and you get help for your symp­toms at the right moment.

You can also use Bud­dy Care to com­mu­ni­cate with health care per­son­nel. The health care per­son­nel can also use the app to con­tact you. In oth­er words, it is easy to be in con­tact with pro­fes­sion­als in Soite via the app.

The app can also be used to dis­trib­ute impor­tant and cur­rent infor­ma­tion about the coronavirus.
