If you believe that you have had a direct exposure to COVID-19, have engaged in risky behavior like traveling, or simply feel under the weather, you should seek a COVID-19 test. If your result is positive, you should follow the recommended guidelines for recovery, stay away from other people for at least 14 days, and inform anyone you may have seen recently that you have tested positive in order to urge them to be tested themselves.
When you are self-quarantining, the thought of leaving your home for a test may seem irrational, but it is vitally important to take a COVID-19 test both so that you can monitor your own health and so medical professionals and epidemiologists can better track the spread of this disease.
If you are self-quarantining, here are several steps you can take in order to get yourself a COVID-19 test:
Remember that COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease. We have been dealing with this pandemic for close to a year, so it is understandable that a continued self-quarantine will feel extreme to some people at this point. Staying away from others is the best way to stay safe and protect yourself from this disease. Continuing to socially distance is still a good idea at this point, even if it feels tedious and unnecessary. The harder we all work to stay safe and healthy at this point, the faster this pandemic will come to a close. So stay at home, get a test if you need one, and stay as healthy as possible during these trying times. Citation Bioscience can help with your at home or at office testing.
