ZA or USA?: Quarantine. This might be COVID 19. .I can’t tell where you are from. If from South Africa, contact PCM who will assess & make determination about COVID 19 testing. USA – policies vary by state. State & local health departments/ providers make actual testing decisions. Some states require a dr.'s referral & some don't. Can call PCM if one believes they should be tested.
