At Risk? Get Tested!
If you have been in close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you need a test. Close contact means within 6 feet or the person for 15 minutes, masked or unmasked.

Testing is recommended for all close contacts because it is possible to transmit the virus before you begin to feel ill, or even if you never get symptoms.

It's important to remember
  • A single negative test does not mean you will remain negative at any time point after that test.
  • Even if you have a negative test, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days
