When to get tested - symptomatic individuals

  • If you have symptoms, get tested right away. Community testing sites are best for people with mild symptoms. If you have moderate to severe symptoms, call your health care provider or go to the hospital. Learn more about who should get tested

When to get tested - after COVID-19 exposure and not fully vaccinated

  • If you don't have symptoms, it's best to get tested at least five days after the last time you were close to the person with COVID-19. If you get tested too soon, the test may not be able to detect the virus. Learn more about who should get tested
