WHO SHOULD GET TESTED?

Anyone, regardless of vaccination status, should get tested if they:



If you have symptoms of COVID-19, get tested as soon as possible and follow CDC guidance for staying home.


If you had close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19:


  • Get tested at least 5 days after you had contact with the person who tested positive.
  • Follow CDC guidance for staying home.

TESTING FOR OTHER REASONS?

  • If you are testing for reasons other than being a close contact to a COVID-19 case or having symptoms of COVID-19, contact your insurance provider prior to visiting a testing site. The cost for testing in lieu of complying with a vaccination mandate or testing for travel may not be covered by your insurance company.
  • If you are testing as a requirement to return to work, use a rapid antigen test if available. PCR tests can continue to produce positive results after a person is no longer infectious.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I TEST POSITIVE?

  • If you test positive using a self-testing kit, report your test result to 1-800-525-0127.
  • Follow CDC guidance for isolation.
  • Notify close contacts.
  • Notify your employer or school.
  • If you get a call or text from public health, respond promptly, and follow recommended guidance.
