Freiheit: Get tested if you show symptoms

Kenosha County Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit also advises residents get a test for COVID-19 if they show any symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who is. 

Getting tested if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive is an important safeguard to slow the spread of the virus,” Freiheit said.

Freiheit added that those who use at-home testing should be sure to seek a confirmatory PCR lab test if they test positive or if they continue to feel symptoms after testing at home.
