How do I get my test results?
If you were tested at a Utah Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 testing site, call (385) 273-7878 to get your test results. Your test results may also have been emailed to you.
What do my test results mean?
- Stay home for at least 5 days from the day your symptoms first started and until you’re feeling better. If you never had symptoms or felt sick, stay home for 5 days from the day you were tested.
- Wear a mask around other people and in public for another 5 days after you end your isolation at home.
- Tell your close contacts to take precautions.
If you test negative for COVID-19:
- Stay home if you have symptoms of COVID-19 until you are feeling better.
- You may need to get tested again or get a PCR test. Testing locations can be found here. If you can’t find a PCR test, wait 48 hours and then test again with an antigen or at-home test.
- Take precautions if you were exposed to COVID-19, like wearing a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days after your exposure.

If you have COVID-19 there are medicines that can help keep you from getting severely ill.
Medicines are available to help you fight a COVID-19 infection, including antiviral pills. These treatments can help keep you from getting severely ill and needing to be hospitalized, but they must be given as soon as possible after your symptoms start.
There are infusion sites, clinics, hospitals, and pharmacies across the state which have these medicines. Some may charge you a fee or bill your insurance. Visit coronavirus.utah.gov/treatments or talk to a doctor to see if one of these treatments is right for you. For a list of locations where you may get these medicines, call the Utah COVID-19 Hotline at 385-273-7878 or text 385-270-8877, Mon-Fri, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. The text feature will no longer be available after September 29, 2023.
