1. Placing a tile

Placing COVID-19 tile
After placing the tile with the COVID-19 symbol (hereafter Covid), the city and the field are infected with Covid. From this moment on, so-called infected areas are created in the game.

Spread of Covid
When the infected area is enlarged[1], the Covid spreads further. The player who enlarged infected the area takes an infection token from a pile and places it on any uninfected area adjacent to any already infected area (e.g., if there is an infected city that has a road leading from it, he can mark it with the token and thus infection). A city, road, field or monastery can be infected.[2]

Once the infection tokens run out, the infecting player must use one of the token already placed, where the disease has since died down.

As soon as any figure enters an infected area during any phase of the game [3] it is obliged to test immediately, testing is described in phase 2. Placing a figure.

Example 2: Red places Covid tile. The city with yellow meeple is enlarged by tile with Covid. Player must test his knight. Knight is tested as positive COVID-19 Test Positive.png and returns to the the yellow supply.
Example 3a: Red enlarges infected field, Covid spreads further. Red possibilities where the infection can spread.
Example 3b: The placed tile enlarges the infected field. The player must take one token and choose any uninfected area in the game to place it. He chooses an uninfected road without any meeples, therefore no meeples or figures are required to be tested.

2. Placing a figure

When playing a figure in an infected area, the player is obliged to test it.

Testing figure
The player takes one testing card for each figure from the top of the pile. The result of the test can be:

  • COVID-19 Test Negative.png Negative - Figure stays where it is placed,
  • COVID-19 Test Positive.png Positive - Figure is removed from board and is returned to players supply,
  • COVID-19 Test Death.png Death - Figure is removed from the game and cannot be used anymore.

Once the pile of facedown testing cards runs out, the discarded testing cards are shuffled to form a new pile.

Example 3a: Blue can place a meeple to an infected area (green arrow) or to uninfected area (black arrow). If the player chooses to place a meeple to an infected area, the player is obliged to test it.
Example 3b: Blue places a meeple on the infected road as highwayman. Highwayman tests negative COVID-19 Test Negative.png and stays on the road.

3. Scoring a feature

COVID-19 does not affect scoring.
