Testing for COVID-19

Testing for COVID-19.

 

There is no treatment or cure for COVID-19. For most people, the illness is generally mild and can be safely managed at home. Testing is only indicated for individuals who are at risk of serious illness, like people over 60 or with underlying medical conditions. It’s important that we follow these testing guidelines to protect healthcare workers and avoid spreading the virus in our communities. Everyone, regardless of whether they have symptoms, should practice social distancing and good hand hygiene.

How to determine if you need testing

Question 1: Are you having symptoms like fever, cough, or difficulty breathing?

  • If YES: Please answer Question #2.
  • If NO: Testing is not needed. If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, stay home and monitor symptoms for 14 days.

Question 2: Are your symptoms severe?

  • If YES: Call your doctor or 999.
  • If NO: Please answer Question #3.

Question 3: Are you over 60? And/or do you have an underlying medical condition like diabetes, cancer or heart disease?

  • If YES: Contact your doctor to determine if testing is needed.

IF NO: Testing is not needed. Stay home for 7 days from symptom onset and 72 hours after fever is gone and symptoms improve (whichever is longer) to avoid getting anyone else sick.
