Should I get a test even if I don’t have coronavirus symptoms?

Yes. Community-wide testing is a critical step toward re-opening the County and allows us to identify and increase our understanding of COVID-19 community spread. This includes collecting a broad sample of results, including data from those who do not have symptoms, as we know upwards of 40% of people who test positive experience no symptoms (asymptomatic), but can still spread the disease.
