WHY ISN’T EVERYONE BEING TESTED?

We have limited resources for testing (testing kits, staff, personal protective equipment for medical providers). We have to prioritize.

This testing option is not meant to replace or eliminate other testing avenues offered by many local healthcare providers. The goal is to supplement those options in order to ease some of the pressure on the existing system.

People still should contact their medical provider for guidance and assessment if they have any of these symptoms, or other health concerns. For medical emergencies, they should call 911 and notify the dispatch personnel that you may have COVID-19.

There is no vaccine or cure at this time. Read more about what to do if you have COVID-19.
