Florida Department of Health issued new COVID-19 testing guidelines

Covid cases are increasing across the country and the Florida Department of Health has released new testing guidelines. These guidelines have been issued in an effort to alleviate testing sites seeing high demand.

This new guidance has also come because the state is short on Covid tests. The federal government has promised more tests but according to Governor DeSantis, they have yet to arrive.

According to the new guidance, the state will prioritize high-value testing. Meaning those with Covid-19 symptoms and/or are high risk will receive priority over low-value testing. Low-value includes those who are not symptomatic and are low-risk for Covid.

ClickOrlando is reporting that “State health officials said testing for anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but have no symptoms is ‘unlikely to have any clinical benefits.’”

The CDC recommends you get tested if you are showing symptoms, have been exposed or need it for screenings prior to work and travel.
