HOW PCR TEST DETERMINES IF YOU HAVE AN ACTIVE COVID-19 INFECTION
COVID-19 swab test detects SARS-CoV-2 virus particles in the nose and throat through sampling those areas and performing a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) evaluation of the specimen. The COVID-19 test will be positive in active infections about 3-5 days following exposure and usually before symptoms begin or before you have the ability to transmit the virus to others. If you feel you have been exposed, set up an appointment to determine your infection status.
WHAT ARE THE COVID-19 INFECTION SYMPTOMS
According to the CDC, symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC claims it will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19. The CDC also advises on seeking medical attention when emergency warning signs occur for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion
- Inability to wake or stay awake
- Bluish lips or face
COVID VACCINATION AND CONTINUED USE OF PRECAUTIONS
As the COVID-19 vaccines are readily available, many of us are going to be resuming things like air travel and in-person attendance of work and other events. Even as vaccines are distributed, it’s important to continue taking precautions like wearing a mask, social distancing when possible, and getting regular tests to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19.
If you are going to be attending an meeting or event where you may come into contact with others, make sure you’re aware of relevant information like the venue, safety standards being observed by the event coordinators, and current infection rates in your area. Get tested for the coronavirus before the event, and make sure you give yourself time to get accurate results before attending. The CDC also continues to recommend getting a COVID test 3-5 days after returning from travel, and continuing to self-isolate for the following week even if the test is negative.
