What to do    •   TEST  AT HOME   

1. you have COVID-19 symptoms (temperature >37,3C, new onset cough, fatigue, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, muscle pain, sore throat, nasal congestion, headache, loose stools, nausea and vomiting, loss of smell or loss of taste):

  • stay at home and begin to self-isolate
  • contact your GP to get sent for a COVID-19 test; they should also stay in a stand-by regime for you and check on you reguarly over the phone/email; please do not visit your GP without making an appointment and please do tell them about your symptoms when making one so that they can see you in their premises safely
  • if you do not have a GP, contact the Hygiene Department http://www.hygpraha.cz/obsah/kontakty_33_1.html
  • you MUST stay at home while you are waiting for a test site appointment and then for the test result; the result of the test will determine how long you must stay at home and self-isolate.
  • A POSITIVE test result means you MUST complete a minimum of 10-day isolation period from the day the test was taken (and not the day when you receive the results). You need to be symptom free for the last 3 days of your isolation (especially no fever) to stop isolating. A cough or loss of smell can last for several weeks once the infection has gone.
    If you still have a high temperature after 10 days, stay at home and seek medical advice (your GP/Hygiene Department) for further advice.
    You could be FINED if you do not stay at home and self-isolate following a positive test result for COVID-19.
  • A NEGATIVE TEST means the test did not find COVID-19 at the time the test was taken. It is always to be discussed with a medical professional. You may have another virus such as a cold or flu. You should stay at home until you feel well - there is no strict 10 days long isolation put in place. Seek medical attention if you are concerned about your symptoms.

2. you do not have symptoms but have tested positive for COVID-19

  • you MUST stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days from the day the test was taken
    You could be FINED if you do not stay at home and self-isolate following a positive test result for COVID-19.

3. you tested positive for COVID-19 and you live with your family in one house/flat

  • you MUST stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days from the day the test was taken
  • stay as far away from other members of your household as possible, especially if they are clinically extremely vulnerable.
  • wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitiser. Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze, bin it promptly and wash your hands. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow. Avoid touching your face. Regularly clean frequently touched surfaces and shared areas such as kitchens and bathrooms and keep indoor areas well-ventilated by opening windows where possible. Take your meals back to your room to eat. Use a face covering when spending time in shared areas inside your home.
  • You could be FINED if you do not stay at home and self-isolate following a positive test result for COVID-19.


4. you live in the same household as someone with COVID-19 or you’ve had close contact  (>15 mins at < 2m distance without your facial mask on or direct physical contact) with someone (colleague, friend) with diagnosed COVID

  • YOU MUST stay at home and begin to self-isolate. This is because you may have been exposed to the virus and could pass it on to others, even if you don’t have symptoms. Do not leave your home unless absolutely necessary, and only exercise within your home, garden or private outdoor space.
  • People who have COVID-19 can infect others up to 2 days before symptoms start, and for up to 10 days after. They can pass the infection to others, even if they have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, which is why they must stay at home.
  • you should be contacted by the Hygiene Department and a test will be organised for you on the 5. - 7. day from the day when the household member tested positive; if the Hygiene Department does not contact you within 48hrs from the day when your household member tested positive, please do contact the Hygiene Department yourself, you may also want to contact your GP if not successful
  • if your test result is positive, follow the same advice for people with positive COVID-19 test result - stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days from when you had your test taken regardless of your symptoms.
  • if you have a negative test result during your isolation period, this does not mean you can stop isolating. Even if you don’t have symptoms, you could still pass the infection on to others. Stay at home for the full 10 days to avoid putting others at risk.
  • You could be FINED if you do not stay at home and self-isolate following a positive test result for COVID-19.


5. you were told to self-isolate and you are an employee

6. you were told to self-isolate and you need medical advice

  • health and care services remain open to help people with all health conditions, including COVID-19. Most people with COVID-19 will experience a mild illness which can be managed at home.
  • all routine medical and dental appointments should be cancelled while you are staying at home. If you are concerned or have been asked to attend in person during this time, discuss this with your medical contact first (for example, your GP or dentist, local hospital or outpatient service).
  • seek prompt medical attention if your illness or the illness of someone in your household is worsening. If it is not an emergency, contact the your GP, if it is an emergency, dial 155.


7. you develop COVID-19 symptoms again after testing positive fo COVID-19

  • if you had a positive COVID-19 test in the last 90 days, you do not need to have another test
