COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

I have symptoms of COVID-19 but I can’t get a test. What should I do?
See your doctor regarding your symptoms, as the advice may be different if a patient has other health issues. If you cannot get a test at one of the testing facilities listed on the Township’s web page, then you can try some of the urgent care centers. If you have symptoms, and cannot get a test, assume that you are positive, and follow the CDC recommendations to isolate yourself, until you are fever free for at least 3 days without the use of fever reducing medications, it has been at least 10 days since the start of your symptoms, and you are mostly recuperated from your symptoms. People you were near from 3 days prior to symptoms and after, should quarantine for 14 days from the last time they were near you (within 6 ft for 10 minutes or more).
