When do I take the test?

Border screening, second test

Your second PCR test is scheduled 5 days after the first test. For example, if you arrive and take your first test on a Wednesday your second test is on Monday. Day 1 is the day after arrival. You will receive a barcode in the evening of day 4 (in the example on Sunday night) to use for the second test. If you cannot for some reason take the second test after 5 days you can go after 6 days (in the example on Tuesday). Until you receive the results of the second test you must adhere to quarantine but quarantine is lifted if the test is negative (no virus found).

Screening to shorten quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure (contact with a confirmed case)
Quarantine can be shortened for asymptomatic individuals by undergoing a PCR screening test after 7 days of quarantine. If your quarantine started on a Monday your screening will be the following Monday. Day 1 is the day after quarantine started. You will receive a barcode in the evening of day 6 (in the example on Sunday night) to use for the screening test. Until you receive the results of the screening you must adhere to quarantine but quarantine is lifted if the test is negative (no virus found). The next 7 days you still needs to pay special attention to hygiene and basic infection control and avoid contact with vulnerable groups.
