The incubation period for COVID-19 ranges from 2-14 days. Most people begin to experience symptoms within five days of exposure. Pre-symptomatic - ANSWER This means that the person has not yet developed symptoms, but can spread the virus. Infectious period - ANSWER The period of time when COVID-19 can be spread to others. People are thought to be contagious when they are pre-symptomatic (i.e., during the incubation period) and when they are symptomatic. Because the infectious period for COVID-19 overlaps with the incubation period, a person infected with the virus may be infectious without showing symptoms. Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) - ANSWER a condition where different body parts become inflamed (i.e., red and swollen). MIS-C can be severe, and while we do not yet know what causes it, many children with MIS-C have had the virus that causes COVID-19. Most children who have been diagnosed with this condition have gotten better with medical care. Types of COVID-19 Tests - ANSWER Nasal swab or saliva tests: Directly detect the virus. Antibody test, also known as a serology (blood) test: Indirectly detects the infection through the presence of antibodies. The presence of antibodies means that the person's body has had an immune response to the COVID-19 virus. In other words, the body detected a harmful virus and activated a defense against it by making antibodies to fight it. Testing Prioritization - ANSWER 1. Hospitalized patients and healthcare workers with symptoms. 2. People who are symptomatic AND are in long-term care facilities; are 65 years and older; have underlying conditions; or are first responders. 3. Individuals whose healthcare providers believe that their care and treatment would be significantly improved by confirming their COVID-19 status. [Show More]
