COVID-19 Information and Resources

While the federal COVID-19 public health emergency declaration is over, COVID-19 is still affecting our community. Here are resources you can use to stay healthy.

For those experiencing symptoms or exposed to COVID-19

Follow CDC guidance on when to get tested. People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may change with new COVID-19 variants and can vary depending on vaccination status. Check the CDC list of symptoms for more information.

Other circumstances

You do not have to experience symptoms or exposure to get tested. Testing may be recommended or required for a variety of reasons, including travel or attending a crowded event.

The CDC’s viral testing tool can be used to decide when you should get tested and how to understand your results.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly encourage everyone who uses a self-test to report any positive results to their health care provider. Health care providers can ensure that those who have tested positive for COVID-19 receive the most appropriate medical care, including specific treatments if necessary.

Some local public health departments are asking residents to consider voluntarily sharing at-home COVID-19 test results:

Home testing

Free at-home tests

Local Pharmacies

Some local pharmacies also offer COVID testing, or sell at-home tests, including:

COVID-19 Treatment

If you have COVID-19 and are more likely to get very sick, treatments are available that can reduce your chances of hospitalization and death. Don’t delay: Treatment must be started within days after you first develop symptoms to be effective.


The COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and available free of charge to everyone ages 6 months and older living in the United States, regardless of immigration or health insurance status.

  • Use the Vaccine Finder website to find a vaccination site, get a ride to a vaccine or get answers to questions.
