More of Your Coronavirus Testing Questions, Answered
The world of coronavirus testing is complicated and confusing. There are lab tests and home tests, spit tests, swab tests and blood tests. But there are still, somehow, not enough tests. On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revised guidelines for who should get tested. But those revisions did little to resolve the thorny questions many people are grappling with.
Whether you need a test, or can even get one, still depends on where you live, where you work and which testing facility you visit. Unfortunately, without a national testing strategy focused on substantially scaling up the nation’s testing capacity, none of this is likely to change anytime soon.
