Coronavirus: Fraser Health announces expanded testing for COVID-19 in B.C.

Fraser Health has announced anyone with cold, influenza or COVID-19-like symptoms can now be tested, however mild those symptoms might be.

However, Fraser Health still says not everyone needs a test and COVID-19 testing is not recommended for people without symptoms.

If a person tests positive, they will be contacted by public health officials and should be self-isolating until they receive a negative test result.

Most results are available within 24 to 48 hours of the test.

Vancouver Coastal Health is also following suit, announcing Monday anyone in that region can also get a COVID-19 test under the same guidelines.
