  1. Contact your health provider by phone or email to be pre-screened for your testing candidacy.

  3. If you have been approved for testing, you will receive a written or digital order, which must be taken with you to receive testing.
  4. Depending on your State’s testing availability and/or your practitioner’s testing preferences, you will be instructed as to where you can be tested.  (In office/In facility/drive-thru testing site)
  5. Mail Order Kits will soon be available from private companies.
 

HELP SAVE LIVES 

 
Why it is important to wear a cloth face covering:
 

“Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. Wearing a cloth face covering will help protect people around you, including those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and workers who frequently come into close contact with other people (e.g., in stores and restaurants). Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings. The spread of COVID-19 can be reduced when cloth face coverings are used along with other preventive measures, including social distancing, frequent hand washing, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.

The cloth face coverings recommended here are not surgical masks or respirators. Currently, those are critical supplies that should be reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders. Cloth face coverings are not personal protective equipment (PPE). They are not appropriate substitutes for PPE such as respirators (like N95 respirators) or medical facemasks (like surgical masks) in workplaces where respirators or facemasks are recommended or required to protect the wearer.”
