  1. What are the criteria that determine whether a person is tested or not? I’m 80, have copd and other ailments that would place me at risk, in my opinion. Is there a form to submit for consideration?

    what are the criteria

  2. Hello, according to the Oswego County Health website, the following is the testing criteria:
    – If you have been quarantined and develop signs and symptoms
    – If you have had a negative flu test and respiratory panel and have signs and symptoms
    – If you have traveled to China, Iran, Japan, South Korea, Italy, or other areas of sustained transmission of COVID-19 in the last 14 days and have signs and symptoms
    – If you have had close contact with a confirmed case and have signs and symptoms
    – If a physician has ruled out other causes and feels testing is warranted

    The testing is by appointment at this time, so those who believe they might have been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms should call their physician or the county hotline number. This number and further resources are at the bottom of the article.

  3. It is about time! I called the virus hotline several days ago, and spoke with 2 people there, asking for transparency as to locations. The citizens of this county are doing their due diligence, we should expect nothing less from our health department and government leaders. It matters not who is positive, but it could help to reinforce the fact it is not in one area and so a very good reason to stay in place as best as possible.
