During the emergency situation, people were given the opportunity to use the patient portal digilugu.ee to apply for a certificate for sick leave or care leave to be opened. After the end of the emergency situation, i.e. May 18, a certificate for sick leave can be opened only by going to a doctor i.e. if you get sick or start to care for a sick family member, you need to contact your family doctor in order to receive a certificate for sick leave or care leave.
