IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT TESTING FOR COVID-19:


There are a limited number of COVID-19 tests available in Monroe County and not everyone with potential symptoms of COVID-19 can be tested.

For most people, the results of a test for COVID-19 will have no impact on what happens next. Everyone should already be staying home, practicing social distancing, and talking with their healthcare providers to manage any symptoms. Having a positive test result does not change this guidance.

The tests are reserved for individuals for whom test results will have an impact on what happens next. For example:

  • A healthcare worker or first responder who tests negative can return to work more quickly.

  • A hospitalized patient who tests negative can be removed from isolation, which saves PPE usage.

  • A hospitalized patient who tests positive will receive more targeted treatment.
