CDC COVID-19 Viral Testing Tool Now Available

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier this week released a COVID-19 Viral Testing Tool to help health care providers and individuals understand their COVID-19 testing options and take the appropriate next steps. Click here to view an online, mobile-friendly tool asks a series of questions, and provides recommended actions and resources based on the user’s responses. This tool helps health care providers quickly access the most relevant, actionable information to determine what type(s) of COVID-19 testing they should recommend to patients. After test results are in, the tool can help interpret test results and guide next steps. The tool complements other CDC testing guidance, including its recently updated guidance on antigen testing.
