Where can I get tested for Covid-19 in the Grand Rapids area?
What is Covid-19?
COVID-19 is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. Because it is a new virus, scientists are learning more each day. Although most people who have COVID-19 have mild symptoms, COVID-19 can also cause severe illness and even death. Some groups, including older adults and people who have certain underlying medical conditions, are at increased risk of severe illness.
What are the symptoms of Covid-19?
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
How long after a Covid-19 infection do I have to wait until can I be around others?
You can be around others after:
10 days since symptoms first appeared and 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications.
*Please note, loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation.
When Is it Safe to Be Around Someone Who Has Recovered From COVID-19?
It's safe for those who have had COVID-19 to be around others when they can meet all three criteria:
It’s been 10 days since their symptoms started.
They haven’t had a fever (without taking any fever-reducing medication) for at least 24 hours.
Their symptoms (like a cough and shortness of breath) have improved.
