Since people sick from the coronavirus don’t always realize they are ill, tests help identify who is infectious and needs to isolate in order to break the chain of transmission. Increased testing also helps public health officials, and elected leaders have better outbreak data on how many people are sick and where they are getting sick, which helps officials target their response.
People with coronavirus symptoms are encouraged to get tested as soon as possible. Testing is now available in some test collection locations to anyone, including people with no symptoms who have been in close contact with a person who tested positive, who have been in contact with a lot of people, or who just want to get tested.
Testing locations and information can be found at coronavirus.ohio.gov.
