The latest reports show that not all clinics and hospitals have sufficient rapid screening tests. If you have signs/symptoms described above, use a telemedicine appointment to speak with a professional about the best next steps based on healthcare system capacity and such. Call your local public health office and they can direct you to testing in your area, or have someone come to your home and test you.
