If you go to a test site operated by local governments, private companies including pharmacies and medical practices or not-for-profit organizations, check with the testing site and your insurer to make sure there isn’t a fee for the test.

Should I get tested for COVID-19?

The CDC suggests that not everyone needs to be tested. If you do receive a test, you should follow the advice of your health care provider or public health professional and quarantine or isolate at home pending the results. Here are the considerations for those who should get tested recommended by the CDC.

  • People who have symptoms of COVID-19.
  • People who have had close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more) with someone with confirmed COVID-19.
  • People who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot socially distance as needed, such as travel, attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded indoor settings.
  • People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider, local or state ​health department.
