Most people who get COVID-19 will recover without needing medical care and therefore do not need a test. When you leave your home to get tested, you risk exposing yourself to COVID-19. For these reasons, we advise that if you have mild symptoms such as cough or fever, there is no need to get tested for COVID-19. If you are concerned about your symptoms, please call your healthcare provider or AppHealthCare for guidance. 

There are things we can all do to slow the spread of this virus. Wash your hands, cover your cough or sneeze and practice social distancing which means avoiding gatherings, keeping 6 feet or more between you and others and remaining home to the greatest extent possible.
