R/O COVID 19: I am not able to tell where you are from. If from South Africa, contact PCM who will assess & make determination about COVID 19 testing. If from USA – policies vary by state. State & local health departments/ providers make actual testing decisions. Some states require a dr.'s referral & others don't. People can call their health care provider if they believe they should be tested.
