Officials say testing for COVID-19 is currently unavailable on-demand or by request because of the nationwide shortage.

Patients must currently meet ISDH’s criteria to be tested, and strict protocol must be followed to ensure no one else is exposed while a mucus specimen is collected from the individual.

Anyone with a fever of 100 degrees and a cough should first call their healthcare provider to discuss their symptoms and determine the next course of action.

ISDH says their dashboard has been updated to remove duplicate entries and correct county of residence with data submitted to them.
