The Tennessee Department of Health has announced the COVID-19 Remote Assessment Site Locations across the state established to substantially increase the capacity to test for the virus causing COVID-19.
If you develop symptoms such as fever, cough, and/or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19, stay home and call your healthcare provider.
Older patients and individuals who have severe underlying medical conditions or are immunocompromised should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild.
If you have severe symptoms, such as persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, or bluish lips of face, contact your healthcare provider or emergency room and seek care immediately.
Your doctor will determine if you have signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and whether you should be tested.
