There have been many questions around coronavirus testing. Key facts about coronavirus testing at this time include:
- If someone has a fever or cough, they should contact their medical provider to find out if they should be tested for coronavirus.
- People without symptoms will not be tested at this time.
After ruling out the flu through a rapid flu test, a provider may take a sample from a patient and send it to a lab where the actual coronavirus testing occurs. Most providers can use a simple swab to collect a sample.
- Idaho is fortunate to have a state-run lab that can process coronavirus tests, and the lab is keeping up on testing needs at this time. Privately-run labs also have begun testing for coronavirus.
- Idaho is actively working to expand access to testing across the state.
