The county strongly recommend anyone feeling these symptoms be tested for COVID-19.
After leaving the test site, symptomatic residents should go directly home for mandatory quarantine until results are shared with them. Essential workers should plan on quarantining outside of work and being extremely cautious around those they come into contact with.
Due to increased demand for testing, appointments for testing may be prioritized based on need. It may take up to five days to receive the test results. Everyone who is tested at the site will receive their results once they are processed.
