Should you get tested for COVID-19?


Should You Get Tested?

Anyone who needs a test is encouraged to get one, but the State offers this additional guidance on when to get tested and how long to quarantine.

If You Have Symptoms:

  • Anyone who has symptoms should get tested immediately and isolate for at least 10 days from onset and until they are fever-free for 24 hours (without the help of medication), and their symptoms are improving. 
  • In some more severe cases, medical providers may recommend isolation for longer. 

If You've Been Exposed:

  • Anyone who has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 should quarantine for 14 days and get tested seven days after the exposure. 
  • A negative test should not release someone from quarantine because symptoms might not appear for up to 14 days after exposure.
