CDC: What to Do If You Are Sick

  • Always keep track of your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek medical attention right away.

CDC: When to Get Tested for COVID-19

  • Key times to get tested:
    • If you have symptoms, test immediately.
    • If you were exposed to COVID-19 and do not have symptoms, wait at least 5 full days after your exposure before testing. If you test too early, you may be more likely to get an inaccurate result.
    • If you are in certain high-risk settings, you may need to test as part of a screening testing program.
    • Consider testing before contact with someone at high risk for severe COVID-19, especially if you are in an area with a medium or high COVID-19 Community Level.
