Will a COVID-19 Test Protect Me From Contracting the Virus?

No. Even if you have a negative result, you should practice physical distancing, wear a face covering, and wash your hands frequently. With widespread community transmission, there is a daily risk of being infected with COVID-19.

Testing for COVID-19 is not comparable to getting the vaccine, which will help prevent you from contracting the virus as opposed to getting tested.
