Testing is an important tool to help communities slow the spread of COVID-19, but the guidance for testing can be confusing. 

Some basic tips:

  • Use the test that's right for you. PCR tests are a good option whether you have symptoms or not. Rapid antigen tests are NOT recommended for people who do not have symptoms. 
  • Stay home while you wait for results, especially if you feel sick or know you've been exposed.
  • A negative test is just a snapshot in time, and doesn't mean it's safe to ignore other appropriate precautions.
