COVID-19 testing

Get tested for COVID-19 if you either:

  • Have symptoms of COVID-19.
  • People who have come into close contact with someone with COVID-19 should be tested to check for infection at least 5 days after they last had close contact with someone with COVID-19.  Day 0 = the date of the last close contact.

Click for a list of PCR testing locations, or call your doctor to request a test.

Call or make an online appointment before going.

If you receive a positive antigen test consider these next steps:

  1. Schedule a PCR test to confirm your results.
  2. While waiting for your PCR test and test results, stay home and isolate yourself from household members.
  3. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and keep 6 feet away from people.
