Whether it's at a Middlesex County Testing site, or with your primary care physician, a
fter you have been tested for COVID-19, you should return home and remain in isolation until you find out the results of your test.










The County has been working with the State of New Jersey, as well as a number of private labs to secure the number of test kits needed to sustain a testing center. Collected specimens are sent to one of the approved laboratories, and results get reported back to the Offce of Health Services.  The Office of Health Services will then contact you by phone with a positive or negative result. ​ The phone call will likely come from a 732-745-XXXX number.   Test results can not be left on voicemail, so you must answer the phone when called and/or promptly return calls to the Office of Health Services after being tested.




IF YOU HAD SYMPTOMS AND YOUR TEST COMES BACK NEGATIVE: 

The recommendation is to stay home and practice social distancing until 72 hours after your fever has ended without the use of fever-reducing medications and other symptoms improve.  After this time, you may resume regular activities.  Please be advised that you should remain isolated at home until your symptoms are resolved.   For more information of what to do after testing negative, see the following guidance:

If you live with other people who were not tested, you should not eat meals or sit around the house together. Stay at least 6 feet from each other as much as possible.  Continue self-isolating until at least 10 days have passed since your symptoms began AND you have not had a fever for at least 3 full days (72 hours) without using fever-reducing medication AND other symptoms are greatly improved.​  For more information of what to do after testing positive, see the following guidance:
