Testing is a Key Indicator

Widespread testing provides a more accurate picture of how many cases exist in our community and helps us understand how and where the virus is spreading. Testing helps identify people without symptoms who could be spreading COVID-19 so that they can stay away from work and public places until their infectious period is over.

 

Testing is one of the key indicators we are tracking as we assess whether, and to what extent, we can reopen.
