Covid-19 Test

The CDC advises testing immediately if you have symptoms. If a home test is negative, retest after 48 hours or get a PCR test. It recommends waiting 5 days after exposure to test if you don’t have symptoms, then either test at home again in 48 hours if your first test was negative, or get a PCR test. Those who don’t get the PCR should repeat the home antigen test a third time after another 48 hours.
