Depends: The primary thought will be does it change anything & is it easy to obtain. Those who develop difficulty breathing are the group likely to need hospital care & should be tested. Those that don't are likely to cruise through it & self heal, so avoiding a testing line may be prudent. Testing if it is quick & available would give you peace, but the need is something you must decide.
