Should I be tested for COVID-19?
You should get tested if you are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, such as cough, fever, sore throat and nausea. You should also undergo testing if you have been in close contact with someone who is exhibiting these symptoms, or if you work in a high-risk facility, such as a senior’s home or school. Testing should be undergone regularly if you work in these high-risk facilities.
What are the symptoms of the Coronavirus?
Symptoms of the coronavirus can manifest in several different forms, including:
- Fever of 100ºF or higher (37.8ºC+)
- New or worsening cough
- Shortness of breath
- Nausea or vomiting
- Abdominal pain
Please note that these symptoms can be caused by other viral infections, such as influenza. However, with the widespread nature of COVID-19, these symptoms should not be ignored and should be tested for immediately. If you have symptoms such as a runny nose or nasal congestion, be sure to rule out seasonal allergies as the culprit, as these are very commons symptoms of seasonal allergies.
Some tell-tale signs on COVID-19 are:
- Sore throat
- Difficulty swallowing
- New olfactory or taste disorders, such as an inability to smell or taste
More serious symptoms of COVID-19 are:
- Unexplained fatigue or malaise (a general feeling of uneasiness)
- Delirium (acutely altered mental status and inattention)
- Unexplained or increased number of falls
- Acute functional decline
- Exacerbation of chronic conditions
- Unexplained headaches
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please get tested immediately, especially if you have underlying health conditions. In many cases, untreated symptoms can worsen over time. If your symptoms go untreated and they intensify, contact a health care specialist right away.

Antibody testing is a test that looks for antibodies in the blood stream in response to an infection. So if you have come into contact with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the presence of these antibodies will be detectable in the bloodstream. This is also known as serology, which is the scientific study or diagnosis of the blood serum in response to the immune system to foreign pathogens or infections.
