Even if you are vaccinated, it is believed that you can still spread COVID-19 if you are symptomatic. And if you are not vaccinated, you are vulnerable to new and contagious variants, so testing continues to be critical to ending this pandemic.
MDH encourages the following individuals to get COVID-19 tests:
- Symptomatic individuals;
- All who suspect exposure, including those who are asymptomatic;
- Individuals who are at risk of exposure, including workers in frequent contact with the public;
- Individuals who have been in large gatherings indoors; and
- Individuals who have traveled recently, including those who have traveled to a state with a COVID-19 test positivity rate above ten percent or a case rate over 20 per 100,000.
