If you've had a risky encounter with someone who is infected you should quarantine.

Do not wait for the regional hygiene station to call you. Please go into voluntary quarantine. If you were infected this will prevent further transmissions of the disease. Inform your GP about the risky encounter by phone. They will give you a request form for an RT-PCR test on COVID-19.
