“After testing, you are required to return home and self-isolate,” Dr. Levine said. “If symptoms develop or worsen while you are waiting for your test results, talk to your doctor. If you experience a medical emergency, please seek immediate care.”

The testing is being done in partnership with Quest diagnostics. To be tested, you must be pre-registered and must meet certain criteria for testing. Those registered, if deemed eligible for testing, will be notified of a testing localtion within a 50-mile radius as well as available appointment times. To register, click here.
