Who should get tested


Mega Doctor News

Not everyone needs to be tested

•       People who have symptoms of COVID-19.

•       People who have had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone with confirmed COVID-19.​​

•       People who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot socially distance as needed, such as travel, attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded indoor settings.

•       People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider, localexternal icon or state health department.

If you do get tested or take an at-home test because you have COVID-19 symptoms or have had a close contact with someone who has it, you should self-quarantine at home pending test results and follow the advice of your healthcare provider or a public health professional.
