CareSouth Carolina COVID Testing Guidelines
At CareSouth Carolina, we are committed to improving the health and well-being of everyone, therefore we will be implementing new COVID-19 testing guidance to ensure that we are following the most updated guidance from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control).
1) If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days, retesting is NOT recommended. If you have developed new onset of symptoms or need clearance to return to work, you will be offered a telehealth appointment to discuss with a provider.
2) If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 but DO NOT have any symptoms, you need to wait at least 5 days from exposure to be tested. Testing earlier than 5 days after exposure is ONLY recommended if you are having symptoms.
3) If you have NOT been exposed to someone with COVID-19, but you ARE having symptoms, get tested.
4) If you have NOT been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and you are NOT having symptoms, you may still get tested but ONLY if you have not been tested in the last 5 days.
*We offer both rapid antigen and PCR (send-out) testing. Rapid antigen testing availability varies by location and current supply. In certain circumstances, PCR (send-out) testing may be more appropriate for your situation and may be the only test offered to you.
