The Health Department recommends testing as soon as possible when:
- you have symptoms of COVID-19
- you are referred by your health care provider
- a person in your workplace or household, or a person you attended an event with, tests positive for COVID-19
- you plan on going to a social gathering with people you don't live with. You should get tested before the gathering, right after, and again on day 7.
If you often gather socially with people you don't live with, you should get tested weekly.
College students returning to Vermont from out of state should quarantine and be tested on or after day 7 of quarantine after returning home.
The Health Department encourages testing for anyone who would like to get a test to help track the virus in the state.

If you do not have symptoms or do not have a doctor
