The RADxUP project (Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics - Underserved Populations) is an initiative in Riley County through the NIH (National Institutes of Health). RADxUP aims to enable and enhance COVID-19 testing of populations disproportionately affected by the disease, including African Americans, American Indians/Alaskan Natives, Latinos/Latinas, Native Hawaiians, older adults, pregnant women and those who are homeless or incarcerated.
If you test positive, you are REQUIRED to isolate:
- Read advice from the CDC HERE
- Stay home until it is safe to be around others.
- If you live with others, stay in a specific “sick room” or area and away from other people or animals, including pets. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
- Read important information about caring for yourself or someone else who is sick, including when it’s safe to end home isolation.
