Call your health care provider if you are symptomatic to discuss whether you should be evaluated in person and considered for testing.
To be tested by the public health laboratory, patients must meet the state's criteria, which evaluates a combination of symptoms and risk factors. Public health testing also requires the local health department's approval.
Patients who don't meet priority requirements can consider testing at commercial labs.
Turnaround time for results depends on where the test is done and when it was sent.
