If you have recently traveled, especially to a place with widespread community transmission of COVID-19, you should monitor your symptoms (fever, cough, tiredness, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or sore throat) for 14 days following your return and report to your healthcare provider if you develop symptoms.

Testing is being reserved for those with higher risk as determined by state and federal guidelines due to a shortage of testing supplies. That said, you do not need to have a test to know what to do. If you develop symptoms, stay home,  take care of yourself, and seek medical care if you need it.
