Testing Criteria: We encourage everyone who needs a test to get one. Due to the surge in the number of positive cases and extreme demand for testing, there are delays that we are seeing right now, in testing availability and turnaround time for results. Because of this, we want to remind people that there are certain times when it is most important to get tested: when you are having symptoms or if you are a direct contact of a positive case. Individuals who are not direct contacts, not having symptoms and are not essential workers might be better to delay testing. Instead we encourage them to continue to social distance, wear their masks, and wash their hands. If you are directly exposed to a positive case, it is not recommended that you get tested until at least 10 days after exposure. This gives the virus time to incubate in your body (if you were infected) and results in a more accurate test. During that time you would still quarantine as instructed for 14 days from exposure. If you are negative on your test, you are not released from quarantine – you must complete the full 14 days of quarantine.
Also, if you test positive for COVID 19, the test-based strategy in which two negative COVID test results are needed is not recommended at this time. A positive COVID -19 test can be persistently positive for more than 6 weeks.
