Most people will have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care and may not need to be tested.
People who have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested should call their health care provider first.
Visit the state or local health department’s website to find the latest local information on testing.
The Montgomery County Health Department at 330 Pageant Lane in Clarksville continues to offer testing and masks.
