If you suspect that you may have COVID-19

  • If you have any symptoms, stay in your place of residence until you have recovered. You must not go to work, school, shops or anywhere else until you are well!
  • Take a COVID-19 express-test. Get a referral for a PCR test at the GP Advice Line at +372 634 66 30.

 

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19

  • Stay in your place of residence for at least 10 days;
  • Inform close contacts about the risk of infection (those living in the same household with person infected with COVID-19, or those having been in contact for at least 15 minutes and close up to 2 meters). NB! Persons with COVID-19 symptoms may put others at risk of infection from 2 days before the onset of symptoms and up to 10 days after that;
  • If you have any health problems, call the GP Advice Line at +372 634 66 30.

 

In case of symptoms

  • If the symptoms are rather mild or moderate: stay in your place of residence, monitor your condition and avoid contacting other people;
  • If symptoms are severe (fever> 38 ° C, cough): stay in your place of residence or call +372 634 66 30;
  • If your health condition is critical (laboured breathing/dyspnoea) and/or you need emergency help, call 112.

 

If you have been in close contact with a person infected with COVID-19

We ask you to stay in self-isolation for 7 days from the date of close contact and monitor your health. If you have symptoms of the disease, get a referral for a PCR test at the GP Advice Line at +372 634 66 30.

You do not have to stay in isolation if:

  • you were diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 180 days;
  • you were fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no earlier than one year ago and reached maximum protection since the last dose of vaccine.

 

Recommendations of the estonian society of family doctors for the covid-19 treatment for adults

  • COVID-19 is associated with an increased risk of thrombosis, so it is important to make sure you drink enough fluids during the day and try to move around the room regularly.
  • Regular breathing exercises are recommended: breathing with tubed lips, blowing soap bubbles, blowing bubbles in a bottled water with a thick straw, or blowing a balloon. The room should be ventilated after exercise.
  • If you have a fever over 38.5° C or feel unwell, you may try over-the-counter painkillers like paracetamol, ibuprofen, dexketoprofen or aspirin. The following table shows the doses for adults and the maximum allowed daily intake.
