Public Health of Seattle & King County strongly urges anyone who has even mild COVID-19 symptoms to call their healthcare provider as soon as they start to feel sick to ask about COVID-19 testing. Get tested for COVID-19 symptoms if you have any of these symptoms:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
It is important not to wait to be tested. If you have COVID-19, you are contagious. You should also call your health care provider and ask for a test if you live with or have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19. Even if you don't have symptoms, you may be contagious and should stay away from others. If you cannot access COVID-19 testing through your regular healthcare provider, King County has provided this list of low or no-cost testing sites, here.
