In St. Louis County, if you have been in close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19, you are required to quarantine. It is recommended that you get tested for COVID-19 about 5-7 days after you were exposed even if you don’t have symptoms, or if/when any symptoms develop at any point during the 10 days of quarantine. 
 
It is also important to note that regardless of whether you’ve been vaccinated or previously had COVID-19, you should be tested if you have any of the above symptoms. Additional testing information can be found online here​​​
