About Testing

A PCR test looks for the viral RNA in the nose, throat, or other areas in the respiratory tract to determine if there is an active infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.  A positive PCR test means that the person has an active COVID-19 infection.  This is currently the only type of diagnostic test available for COVID-19.

*It is important to remember that the positivity rate for the testing events hosted by the Cass County Health Department will tend to be higher than the total County positivity rate because the qualifications for the testing events (symptoms or an exposure) will make participants more likely than the general population to test positive for COVID-19.
