“Testing community members for COVID-19, regardless if they have symptoms or not, provides the health department the ability to identify the extent of any community spread of the virus. The health department conducts contact tracing for each individual that tests positive in an effort to halt further spread. In this sense, community residents who volunteer for this testing perform a valuable community service to stop the spread of COVID-19.”
