COVID-19 Testing

Summit County is continually working with providers to ensure that anyone in our community who is symptomatic, or falls into a risk category and is asymptomatic, may easily receive a test. All providers are using the same test, so individuals may choose whichever of the following options they prefer, and all providers will contact the patient following testing with results and further guidance on care based on results.

  • Asymptomatic testing is available for high risk categories such as:
  • Health care workers and first responders
  • As a part of contact tracing for public health surveillance
  • In the context of a COVID-19 outbreak
  • Those who have been in a group of greater than 10 people where physical distancing and/or face coverings were not utilized.
