Coronavirus Testing - Information & Guidance

Who Should Get Tested

With testing now broadly available, anyone with symptoms or anyone else who believes they should be tested, should get tested. (If you think you were around someone who tested positive, if you recently traveled, if you spent time at a large gathering or if you just want to check your status are just a few examples of reasons you may choose to get tested.)
