Testing for COVID-19

Testing for COVID-19 has become a critical issue in the social and economic management of and recovery from this global pandemic. Testing is essential for protecting individuals, guiding them in how and when it is safe to engage with others and identifying when new infections are present even in the absence of symptoms so that action can be taken to reduce further transmission.

Proper Use of Masks

While prioritizing the availability of protective masks to healthcare workers, everyone should wear some form of mask or face covering when they are out in public to prevent the spread of droplets. This is especially important because presymptomatic or asymptomatic individuals can still infect others.
