COVID 19 testing: HealthTap's free, public site is for education. We can't provide you with referrals on this portion of HealthTap. In South Africa- one consults with a medical provider who will determine need for COVID 19 testing. Consult your local primary care provider or use resources like “Talk –to-Doctor” on HealthTap. In USA testing policies vary by state.
