Who should get tested for COVID to see if they are currently infected?

The following people are highest priority for COVID-19 testing:

  • Anyone with symptoms.
  • Anyone who had close contact within the previous 14 days to a person who was confirmed to have COVID-19, especially household contacts and intimate partners.
  • Anyone who works in a group residential setting, such as a nursing home, adult care facility, and homeless shelter.

Call your provider if you have symptoms and think you may need to be tested. You can also find a community testing site near you.
