Florida Department of Health issues new COVID-19 testing guidance

Jan. 7, 2022

The Florida Department of Health has issued an updated COVID-19 testing guidance in which it recommends against testing people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but have no symptoms:

“COVID-19 testing is unlikely to have any clinical benefits,” the department said.

However, the department also said the people with symptoms of COVID-19 who are at risk of severe illness should get tested, while people with symptoms and no risk factors should “consider getting testing for COVID-19 soon after symptom onset.”
