Do I have to quarantine after I get tested?

In almost all situations, quarantine is required for a person waiting for COVID-19 test results. However, since everyone can participate in the free testing events in Riley County, even those who do not have symptoms and have not had known close contact with a positive patient, quarantine is highly recommended instead of required in those circumstances.

Some workplaces require that employees stay home and quarantine if they are tested, including the free testing events. A workplace can make that distinction for their employees.

If you are sick or would like information about testing, please call the Riley County Screening Line at 785-323-6400. The Screening Line is staffed by nurses and is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. If you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms, call 911.
