WHO SHOULD BE TESTED:
- Anyone with signs/symptoms of COVID-19 (even if as minor as a runny nose or congestion)
- All household contacts (including children) of positive COVID cases
- Friends, coworkers or school contacts of positive COVID cases- please test a minimum of 7 days after the last exposure to the case.
ISOLATION: (for persons who test positive)
To determine your isolation period:
- If you have symptoms: use onset date of symptoms, up to 2 days prior to the date of testing.

We encourage everyone to get tested whenever they have symptoms such as a headache, hay fever symptoms, diarrhea, cold-like symptoms, runny nose, cough, or fever. The rapid tests such as over-the-counter tests, may not be positive for a few days after the onset of symptoms, so instead, consider getting a PCR test.
