If you test positive and have underlying medical problems, are 65 or older, or are
unvaccinated against COVID-19, call the clinic right away so that you can be evaluated
for COVID-19 treatment.

At Lummi Public Health we’re noticing that it can sometimes take several days before an at home rapid COVID test is positive for people who are infected with the current type of COVID variant. If you are feeling sick with symptoms of COVID but have a negative test at home, please continue isolating and take another rapid test every 24 hours until you start feeling better. If your symptoms are getting worse or you still aren’t feeling better after 2 days, contact your doctor to get evaluated for other illnesses.
