Due to the heavy workloads at Landspítali's Covid outpatient ward and the Civil Protection's Tracing Team, the Chief Epidemiologist has announced that those who have already completed seven days of isolation, do not experience any symptoms of COVID-19 and have not been able to contact the covid outpatient ward, can and may discharge themselves.
There is no need to try to contact the outpatient ward. Only those who are experiencing worsening symptoms need to contact the ward.
As before, day zero is the day an individual takes a PCR test, which is positive. Neither a positive at-home test nor a rapid antigen test can be used as a benchmark for day zero.
