Testing for Covid 19

Answered 1 year ago

I've been looking at information regarding Covid 19. I started to wonder.... is there a time limit on how long after you have shown symptoms for can you get tested? Like for e.g. say you had symptoms for 5 days and thought I better get tested. Would that be too late? I am curious πŸ€” does anyone have an answer?

My family and I had sniffles and coughs for 5 days. We knew they were colds but we got tested anyway. It's safer to be sure :)

Great question. No. Go and get tested. Containing this relies on finding people who have the virus. If you have had it and have recovered you will show negative and you can continue your daily activities. If you do have it, it is critical that you isolate so as not to unwillingly spread it to others. I had my son tested and the process was easy. (It was only slightly uncomfortable for him, but otherwise easy to organise).

I think if in doubt, just get tested.
