If you develop symptoms and are unsure whether it is COVID-19, you should act as if you are infected with novel coronavirus, as follows:
How do I self-isolate?
The most important way of preventing the spread of infection is through ensuring that people infected with novel coronavirus self-isolate. If you have symptoms, there is no way of knowing whether you are infected with novel coronavirus until you have been tested. It is therefore important that you self- isolate until you have been tested and have the test result.
In many communities, local initiatives have been launched to support those in need. Check to see if such support is available in your local area. You can also contact ‘Røde Kors Corona Hjælpenetværk’ on tel. 35 29 96 60 or visit rodekors.dk/corona/hjælp.
Avoid close physical contact such as kissing and hugging and keep a distance of at least two metres. Avoid sleeping together and avoid spending too long in the same room. Ideally use a separate toilet/bathroom. If you only have one toilet/bathroom, you should make sure to clean all surfaces after use, e.g. by disinfecting toilet seats, basins and taps before they are used by other members of your household.
Children often get colds or other infectious diseases, and sick children should never attend school or daycare.
It is therefore only natural that you might be worried that your child has been infected with novel coronavirus, whether your child can attend school, whether your child should be tested, etc.
The Danish Health Authority has published a leaflet with guidance that you can read here: https://www.sst.dk/-/media/Udgivelser/2020/Corona/Overs%C3%A6ttelser/symptomer-engelsk.ashx?la=en&hash=77B3779C6255A3AE8E2DB2EAB262EAFBE2EDF92B
