Know when to get tested
COVID-19 tests are safe, effective, and critical to stopping the spread of the virus. And the sooner you know if you have the virus, the sooner you can get back to doing the things you love!
If you are at a high risk of getting very sick or have questions about your specific symptoms and health conditions, please call your doctor or healthcare provider directly.
If you have symptoms, you should get tested immediately, even if you have been vaccinated. If you were exposed and you do not have symptoms, wait at least five full days after exposure before testing. Visit GetTested to learn more.
