After You Have Been Test­ed for the Coronavirus

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

If Your Test Result is Positive

If your coro­n­avirus test result is pos­i­tive, you will receive a text mes­sage with short instruc­tions that you must fol­low. Please acquaint your­self care­ful­ly with the instruc­tions. The goal is to con­tact per­sons over the age of 60 by phone if the test result is positive.

Those who have been infect­ed, must avoid close con­tact with oth­er peo­ple for at least five days. Per­sons who have mild symp­toms do not need to be in con­tact with Soite’s infec­tion unit after this if they have two symp­tom-free days before the iso­la­tion ends.

More infor­ma­tion:

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 yet turned 16). Please men­tion dur­ing the call that a coro­n­avirus test has been taken.
