Call your health care provider if you are symptomatic to discuss whether you should be evaluated in person and considered for testing. If you do not have a health care provider, call your local health department to be connected to one in your area.
Testing is available from private labs and the state public health lab for symptomatic patients.
Tests conducted by the state lab can only be requested by providers and local health departments and cases must meet the state's criteria, which evaluates a combination of symptoms and risk factors, and be approved by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to be conducted by the state public health lab.
Results are typically available within a day once they are received by the state lab. Results times from private labs, which are beginning to test in the state, may vary.
