      • Stay home and monitor for cough, shortness of breath, and fever. Practice social distancing to avoid the spread of any illness they may have.
  • If you are symptomatic and have had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19:
      • Call your health care provider to discuss whether you should be evaluated in person and considered for testing. If you are symptomatic, do not arrive at a health care provider or emergency room without calling ahead and alerting them to your symptoms.

  • Providers determine if a patient should be tested and whether to contact the public health authorities or use a commercial lab.
  • To be tested by the state public health laboratory, patients must meet the state’s criteria, which evaluates a combination of symptoms and risk factors. Priorities for testing may include: 
      • Hospitalized patients who have signs and symptoms compatible with COVID-19 in order to inform decisions related to infection control. 
      • Symptomatic residents of congregate living facilities that house adults ages 65 or older
      • Individuals with chronic medical conditions and/or an immunocompromised state that may put them at higher risk for poor outcomes (e.g., diabetes, chronic heart disease, such as heart failure, receiving immunosuppressive medications, chronic lung disease, chronic kidney disease). 
      • Any persons including healthcare personnel, who within 14 days of symptom onset had close contact with a suspect COVID-19 patient with pending laboratory testing or laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 patient.
  • Patients who don’t meet these requirements can consider testing at a commercial laboratory.
  • State lab results are generally available within 24 hours. Commercial labs take approximately three days.
