Who should be tested?
Individuals infected with COVID-19, influenza A/B or RSV often experience similar symptoms of cough, fever, and a runny and/or stuffy nose. Because flu and COVID-19 especially share so many similar symptoms, the CDC advises that patients may need testing to confirm a diagnosis. Patients may also be considered for testing if they have come into contact with someone they know who is infected by the coronavirus or meet criteria established by the CDC.
