Next week the private suppliers of quick tests will reopen many of their test centres to scale capacity to a minimum of 100,000 tests daily. Both PCR test and Quick test are free and anyone with coronavirus symptoms, even for those who are fully vaccinated, are encouraged to get tested.

Residents ( even if fully vaccinated) who are close contacts to someone infected with covid-19 are encouraged to get a PCR test as the PCR test is more accurate.

The test capacity is scaled to 100,000 tests from the 7 November and can be increased again within 14 days according to the Danish health authorities.

All tests are free of charge.
