Don't delay getting tested for COVID-19

Get tested as soon as possible if you start feeling sick. It is easy to ignore mild symptoms, but recognizing possible infection, getting tested and staying isolated while awaiting results are critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19.  Make it clear to your healthcare provider that you have COVID-19 symptoms, and in accordance with state and local recommendations, you are requesting to be tested as soon as possible.
