ReOpen Connecticut – Why testing is important

From State of Connecticut.

Connecticut is making progress in fighting COVID-19. Our success is because of people like you, that have been taking precautions such as wearing a mask in public and washing your hands frequently. But the fight continues, and it is not over yet.

The next step to stopping the spread of COVID-19 is making sure we get tested. Testing protects our family, our friends, and our neighbors because a lot of times people don’t show any symptoms but still carry the virus. Testing helps us to identify if and where there is an outbreak so we can prevent it from escalating and spreading further. Most of us have been working every day, taking care of our families, and have not had the chance yet to get tested.
