COVID – 19 Information
THE BIG QUESTION: If I have been exposed to Covid-19, when should I get tested?
THE ANSWER: The Covid-19 Task Force Committee uses the 5-day mark after exposure to a person(s) positive with or suspected Covid-19 infection to be tested. The reason for waiting is that the virus must multiply in the body to be detectable when tested.
