How much does a COVID-19 test cost?
The cost for testing should be covered by most insurance plans or through government-sponsored programs.
For private pay patients, please contact your health care provider for cost to administer a COVID-19 test.
How long after exposure should you get tested for COVID-19? Consider getting tested 3-5 days after exposure, even if youre vaccinated and dont have symptoms.
Do I need to stay home if I test positive for COVID-19? If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home. You are likely most infectious during these first 5 days. Wear a high-quality mask if you must be around others at home and in public. Do not go places where you are unable to wear a mask.
