Why and When to be Tested for COVID-19

SARS-CoV-2 also known as COVID-19 may be one of the most common conversation points in recent memory. The information has been evolving and changing so rapidly, it is difficult to keep well informed on the topic. This has been challenging to the general public as well as to the healthcare community. The spread of this novel virus has been rapid, particularly in the heavily populated urban centers. However, at present there are few communities that have not had at least a few cases of COVID-19 identified. As a provider at Integrity Urgent Care, I want to address the question of why to be tested and its importance to not only each individual, but also your community.
