Include COVID-19 Testing As Part of your COVID-19 Prevention Routine!

With our economy reopening and the stay-home order lifted, more people will be mixing in our community.  Whether wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, washing hands, or avoiding indoor gatherings, we can all play a role in ending COVID-19 in our community. Until the vaccine is widely available to everyone later this year, the next most important tool we have in our toolkit is broad testing of our community.

 

Why? With COVID-19 testing, people who test positive and have symptoms can get care earlier, likely reducing disease severity.  That person’s contacts can be traced, and quarantine started earlier to reduce the chance of infecting other people. 

 

The testing of people who have been in contact with others who have a documented infection is also important. A negative test doesn’t mean you’re in the clear; you could be infectious later. Therefore, even if you test negative, you need to continue to protect yourself and others by washing your hands frequently, physically distancing, and wearing a face mask. A positive test makes it clear that you have to isolate yourself, and that others with whom you have been in contact since the time of your exposure should also get tested.

 

Since it is recognized that nearly half of all SARS-CoV-2 infections are transmitted by people who are not showing any symptoms, identifying infected individuals while they are presymptomatic, as well as those who are asymptomatic, will play a major role in stopping the pandemic.
