As of right now there are two main types of COVID-19 testing, nasal and nasopharyngeal swab testing. The testing kit is similar to a flu swab test and it may cause some discomfort. UC Davis offers some more information and visuals on how the test is conducted. Depending only how and where you get tested, the results can vary in how long they can take to come back.

HOW CAN I GET TESTED?

During these times where testing is limited, typically those who have developed COVID-19 symptoms are eligible for testing. The CDC has a very useful online Self-Checker tool to help people assess their symptoms and determine whether they should get tested.

Symptoms, Testing, and Self-Checker Tool

If you have developed symptoms or are a high risk individual and believe you need to be tested for COVID-19, contact your primary care physician on further steps and testing options in your area. Check with your provider to determine the cost of testing or whether it is covered by health insurance.

 

If you suspect you have COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19, we recommend following these safety guidelines from the CDC. Below you can find these in either English or Vietnamese.
