If I test negative today, can I go to Grandma & Co. with peace of mind?
In principle, a negative test gives you more security in dealing with your relatives. The test is a snapshot and not a prevention. Therefore, it essentially depends on the behavior after the smear test. A negative test result shows the infection status at the time the test was performed and thus that there was no viral load or a viral load below the detection limit at that time.
What do I do if the test result is positive?
In case of a positive result, you must immediately go into quarantine! This also applies to household members of persons with a positive rapid test! Quarantine may only be terminated if a subsequent PCR test has a negative result. As a person tested positive, you are entitled to a free PCR test for confirmation or refutation. Please also inform yourself immediately about the currently applicable regulations and obligations and follow them. Positive test results are automatically forwarded by us to the responsible health authority.
