Considerations for who should get tested

  • People who have symptoms of COVID-19

  • People who have had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more) with someone with confirmed COVID-19.​​

  • People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider, local or state health department.

Not everyone needs to be tested. If you do get tested, you should self-quarantine/isolate at home pending test results and follow the advice of your health care provider or a public health professional. You should presume you are positive until your results are returned and begin isolating. Follow these 3 key steps while you are awaiting your results.

If You Have a Positive Test or Have Been Exposed to Someone With COVID-19

Please follow the current CDC guidelines regarding isolation and quarantine which can be found HERE.

What is Contact Tracing and why is it important?

Contact tracing has been used for decades by state and local health departments to slow or stop the spread of infectious diseases.

Contact tracing slows the spread of COVID-19 by

  • Letting people know they may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19

  • Helping people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 get tested

  • Asking people to self-isolate if they have COVID-19 or self-quarantine if they are a close contact of someone with COVID-19

During contact tracing, the health department staff will not ask you for

  • Money

  • Social Security number

  • Bank account information

  • Salary information

  • Credit card numbers

Here is what you can expect from Contact Tracing.

We can all work together to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
