**Also please note, Rapid Testing that was scheduled at Rowan Helping Ministries on December 16th has now been moved to Rowan County Public Health (1811 East Innes Street) from 9 am to 12 noon.
Please note that these symptoms may be mild to severe and may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Also, you may be COVID positive and not have any symptoms, but you still can infect others around you and not even know that you are that you are doing so.
What happens after you get tested?

At that time, a member of our COVID-19 Team will either share with you that are negative and you are free to return to work or school; or that you are positive and you will need to stay in self-isolation.
