Why test

Testing for COVID-19 can help you determine if you are infected regardless of whether you have symptoms. A reliable test result helps confirm whether you are at risk of spreading the infection to others and to determine whether you should self-isolate.

Reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19 is an important measure to ensure we can return back to work, school and normal lives.
