This is a PCR test that will detect the presence of COVID-19 (active disease). Test results are expected within 4 days but could take longer. After testing, stay home until test results are returned if you have had COVID-19 symptoms or suspected or known exposure to the virus.
You should also monitor your health and talk to your doctor or health care provider.
Anyone who tests positive will be contacted by their local health department and should stay home and away from others for at least 10 days.
Public health officials will check in on your health, help you identify resources needed to safely isolate, ask where you have spent time with others and discuss who you have interacted with as part of the contact tracing process to limit further disease spread.
