COVID-19 testing still advised for people with symptoms and close contacts of confirmed cases
posted about 1 month ago by firstname.lastname@example.org from San Juan Island Community Foundation
The Washington State Department of Health’s guidance around testing has not changed: if you have symptoms, you need to get tested. If you’re a close contact of a confirmed case, you need to get tested. Close contacts of confirmed cases also need to stay at home away from others (quarantine) for 14 days after the last exposure even if they test negative for COVID-19 because it is possible for people who test negative to still be incubating the virus, and become contagious later.
