From Nassau County Emergency Management:
Sharing again for those wondering if they need to be tested for COVID-19.
What should I do if I think I (or someone in my family) might have COVID-19?
• If you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath and need medical care, contact your health care professional.
• The Florida Department of Health is prioritizing testing of sick individuals who had close contact with a laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 case, are part of an outbreak, have traveled to an area with widespread COVID-19 transmission, or are hospitalized with unexplained respiratory illness.
• If you are sick and have recently traveled to an area where COVID-19 is spreading or have had close contact with a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19, your provider will work with your county public health department to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
• If you are sick and have NOT traveled or been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case, contact your doctor’s office, an urgent care, or an emergency department for follow up. If your doctor decides they want to test for COVID-19, they can order a test through a commercial lab or contact the health department for consultation at 904-875-6100.
