If you are symptomatic and in need of medical care, call your health care provider to identify the safest way to receive care. Let them know if you have traveled to an affected area within the last 14 days or have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19.
Local health districts urge residents to only contact their medical professional if it is a serious situation, in order to prevent health care facilities from being inundated with calls and avoid patients arriving at their locations without prior appointments.
Testing decisions are made by the health care provider and public health departments on a case-by-case basis depending upon symptoms and potential exposures. Nevada has two public health laboratories conducting testing.
