Coronavirus Testing Rules

From April 1, 2022, the rules for testing for coronavirus have changed.

The doctor will decide to refer a patient for a coronavirus test based on an assessment of patient’s health, including symptoms that may indicate COVID-19.

Antigen test

If the doctor decides to test a patient with disturbing symptoms, it will be a quick antigen test. The test result is known after a few or several minutes. The test will be free for the patient.

PCR test

A PCR test may be ordered by the doctor prior to admission to hospital if deemed necessary. The PCR test will be used in the event of definitive confirmation or exclusion of whether the symptoms of respiratory tract infections with which the patient entered the hospital are caused by the coronavirus.

Self-isolation

In the case of a positive SARS-CoV-2 test result, the doctor recommends self-isolation (sick leave) until symptoms disappear. Just like any infectious disease, such as the flu.

The length of the leave depends on the doctor (minimum 7 days recommended), depending on the patient's condition, risk factors for the severe course of the COVID-19 disease (e.g. lack of vaccination against COVID-19, advanced age, chronic diseases, e.g. diabetes) and high risk the occurrence of complications.

Pulse oximeter

From June 23, 2022, Home Medical Care will no longer send pulse oximeters to COVID-19 patients.

Under Home Medical Care, a COVID-19 patient could receive a pulse oximeter for the duration of isolation. He was automatically qualified for the program or referred by his primary care doctor. The mailman then delivered the device.

The patient downloaded the free PulscoCare app, which helped him monitor his saturation (oxygenation) and pulse levels. The device connected to the app via bluetooth and automatically recorded the patient's measurements in the app. Data could also be entered manually in the app or via the website after self-reading from the pulse oximeter's display. Those without Internet access could report measurements to an automated hotline.

If your results indicated a worsening of your condition, the 24-hour Home Medical Care Contact Center contacted you to verify the measurements, arrange for a medical or psychological phone advice line, and, in life-threatening cases, recommend calling an emergency medical team.

As of June 23, the device can no longer be obtained.

Fourth dose for seniors

From April 20, 2022, people aged 80+ can receive a second booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccination.

People over 80 years of age or older and have had a full primary vaccination and first booster dose can schedule a second booster 5 months after the first booster dose.

Only mRNA vaccines Comirnaty (Pfizer) or Spikevax (Moderna) are used in the booster vaccination. The Ministry of Health recommends vaccination with the same preparation that was given to the person during the first booster vaccination.

You can find your referral for a second booster dose vaccination on your Internet Patient Account and in the mojeIKP application.

You can make an appointment for vaccination:

If you received Nuvaxovid (Novavax) or the Johson&Johnson single-dose vaccine as part of your first booster, you cannot receive a second booster, so you will not be referred.
