Testing for COVID-19 leads to quick identification of positive cases and immediate isolation of those who test positive to prevent further spread in our community. Confirmed positive cases and close contacts to positive cases are quarantined to further reduce spread. Testing is a vital tool for public health officials to monitor the COVID-19 infection rate and to identify asymptomatic carriers in the community.
Those with general COVID-19 questions may call Tioga County Public Health at 607-687-8623.
