When to Test

If you are experiencing emergency warning signs for severe COVID-19, please seek immediate medical assistance by calling 911 or going to your nearest emergency facility.

Symptoms that require emergency medical attention may include:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone

Feeling Sick?

If you are experiencing symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, consider getting tested.

  • If you have tested positive or are showing symptoms, please follow isolation guidelines to prevent spreading the virus to others.


If you have been exposed to COVID-19, begin taking precautions immediately. This includes wearing a high-quality mask for 10 full days after exposure. If you start experiencing symptoms, test immediately.

  • Even if you are not showing symptoms, it is still important to get tested 5 full days from your last exposure. Testing too close to exposure can produce inaccurate results.
    • If you test positive 5 full days after exposure, begin isolating and follow isolation guidelines.
    • If you test negative 5 full days after exposure, continue taking precautions throughout day 10, including wearing a high-quality mask when around others indoors at home and in public.

Screening Testing

Certain high-risk settings require testing as a part of screening processes.

Consider testing before coming into contact with individuals at high-risk for severe COVID-19.
