Since COVID-19 infection may initially present as conjunctivitis of the eye in addition to fever and a dry cough, I ask the following:

If you have a fever and/or a dry cough or flu-like symptoms, please do not come to the surgery, but first have COVID-19 infection ruled out through your primary care physician.

By extending the treatment time per patient, an attempt is made to reduce the possibility of contact with other persons in the surgery to a minimum. This results in a significantly reduced number of examination appointments. If you are ill or unable to keep your appointment, please cancel your appointment (call +49 (0)40 – 279 34 68 or cancel your online booking) by 8 a.m. on the morning of the examination day at the latest, so that the appointment can be given to other patients.

If you do not have these symptoms, you are welcome to come to the surgery, provided that your Robert Koch Institute (RKI) Corona Warning app does not indicate a risk and you are wearing a medical mouth/nose mask. Homemade masks do not provide safe protection because of untested material density. Masks with an outlet valve are not permitted because of the risk to other people.

What should I do if I think I have COVID-19?

The first point of contact for citizens with symptoms such as fever, cough, respiratory symptoms or loss of sense of smell/taste is to call their family doctor.

For severe cold symptoms and all other illnesses that require urgent medical treatment or consultation, or if they cannot visit a doctor’s office (for example, if they are immobile), you can call Arztruf Hamburg: 116117.
