I spent time with those who tested positive for COVID-19. I'm entirely vaccinated, do I need to get tested?
Yes, you have to do that. In July 2021, the CDC suggested that anyone fully vaccinated and comes into contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 should get tested 3 to 5 days after illness. In addition, you have to wear a mask in public places until you receive a negative test result. If you are vaccinated, you don’t need to quarantine, but isolate if you develop symptoms or positive test results.
How people tested for COVID-19?
Must do a specific diagnostic test to confirm that a person has a positive coronavirus infection. A clinician usually takes a swab of your nose (your nose and throat). Some tests were done using a saliva sample. The sample is then examined for the virus’s genetic material (PCR test) or antigen test.
I also wrote an article on What Is A Covid PCR Test also you can read.
How does coronavirus spread?
This virus spreads by keeping close to people already suffering from this disease. This virus enters the body when the patient of this disease, touching his eyes or nose or mouth, contact the place or object of droplets from coughing or sneezing. Inhaling these droplets can also become a victim of this virus. Therefore, should maintain a distance of 1 meter from people affected by this disease.
