This includes:
  • You are only allowed to leave your house for essential work, health, care or safety reasons.

If you have even the mildest of symptoms you need to get tested. For all testing locations visit the DHHS website.

In home testing is now available to individuals who meet a range of criteria. Visit the DHHS website for more information.

If we all do this, we can protect our loved ones, friends, colleagues, health care workers and the community.
