Anyone can get tested for COVID-19. Call your primary care physician or search for a test site near you. PCR testing is available through Upstate Medical University and the Syracuse Community Health Center for Onondaga County residents.

Individuals with negative test results will be notified by the office/clinic that provided the test and may end quarantine at that time unless they are already under quarantine as a contact to a positive case–it is not possible to “test out early” of mandatory quarantine in this case.

What if I test positive?
If you test positive for COVID-19, you will be placed under an order of mandatory isolation. You must stay home and avoid contact with others at all times, including members of your own household. You must remain in isolation for at least 10 days and have a temperature of under 100 degrees for three days in a row before being released from isolation. The isolation period is typically 10 days from symptom onset (or from the date of the positive test if you are asymptomatic).

Those identified as close contacts will be placed in a Mandatory Order of Quarantine for at least 10 days. Learn more about isolation and quarantine here.
