Multiple COVID-19 testing sites open in Oregon

If you need a COVID-19 test, several testing sites have opened up across the state.

PORTLAND, Ore. — If you’re in need of a COVID-19 test, several sites have opened up across Oregon once again.

Oregon health officials suggest you be tested if you have symptoms, which according to the CDC can include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

However, the CDC says these are not all the possible symptoms. Health officials also suggest testing if you’ve had close contact with someone, which is considered to be within six feet of someone for 15 minutes or more over the course of a day who has COVID-19.

If you are unvaccinated and don’t have any symptoms but are being tested because you had close contact with a confirmed case, health officials say that it is best to test as soon as possible and again five to seven days following the exposure. However, it is important to isolate while you wait.

For vaccinated people, it is still important to be tested if you have symptoms or have been in close contact with a confirmed case. Vaccination helps lessen symptoms and sharply decreases the chance of severe infection but vaccinated people can still get and spread COVID-19.
