The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people of any age get tested for COVID-19 if:
路 They have symptoms of COVID-19
路 They have had close contact with someone with confirmed COVID-19 (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes)
路 They have been asked or referred to get tested by their healthcare provider or local or state health department.
The CDC also recommends that, while waiting for test results, young people should stay away from others if possible, especially those who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19, such as older adults and people with other medical conditions. The CDC also recommends watching for symptoms of COVID-19, which may appear anywhere from two to 14 days after exposure.
