Testing is recommended for anyone who thinks they have been exposed to COVID-19, whether or not they have symptoms.

One way to know about possible exposure to a person who has COVID-19 is by receiving a call from a contact tracer with the Caldwell County Health Department. It is important to answer the call. The contact tracer will share important information and ways to stay safe.

 People experiencing COVID-like symptoms can visit “Check My Symptoms” here and enter their symptoms to determine if COVID-19 testing is needed. To find testing sites in Caldwell County, visit here.
