Who Should Get Tested for COVID-19?

In this unprecedented time of crisis, the COVID-19 cases are increasing exponentially. The chances that you will get exposed to SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes infection) continue to increase. If you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or begin to experience symptoms of the COVID-19, you should self-quarantine or self-isolate yourself for 14 days to avoid the spread of the disease and go get rapid testing. Self analyze day to day signs and symptoms of coronavirus. The virus’s incubation period is around 5 to 7 days, but it can be up to 14 days. If you don’t develop symptoms by the end of 14 days, good news you don’t need to test. Patients can stop self-isolating once their doctor advises them it is safe to do so. Generally, factors to consider are:

  • You have had 24 hours without fever (off of anti-fever medication)
  • It has been at least 10
