If you are a high-risk individual and you develop fever or symptoms, call your doctor. DSHS encourages the voluntary use of masks, along with other actions, as prevention against COVID-19 and other respiratory infections. Under Governor Abbott’s Executive Order, mandatory masking for COVID-19 is not authorized.
During that time, our group was working on a study examining the performance of over-the-counter tests in the general population. We used data from this study to look at the performance of these tests both before and after omicron became the dominant variant in the United States. Our study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, was unique because it was testing people for the COVID-19 virus over the course of two weeks, and thus we were able to observe emerging infections. Early in the omicron surge, around December 2021, people wondered about the ability of rapid tests to detect the new variant. Additionally, some preliminary tests proved that rapid tests that identify the omicron variant showed a one-to-two-day delay in a positive result compared to tests performed with the delta variant.

What are some of the first symptoms of COVID-19?
Early symptoms reported by some people include fatigue, headache, sore throat or fever. Others experience a loss of smell or taste. COVID-19 can cause symptoms that are mild at first, but then become more intense over five to seven days, with worsening cough and shortness of breath.
If you don’t have a regular doctor, call your local board of health. If you’re infected, symptoms can show up in as few as 2 days or as many as 14. It is also normal for a virus to change, or mutate, as it infects people and this virus has done so.
Information For Health Professionals
Tests that identify host immune response are referred to as serological tests and are intended to be administered as simple blood tests. These tests can indicate whether an individual has been previously exposed to COVID-19. Antibody test results are important in detecting infections in individuals with few or no symptoms and have been used in conjunction with RT-PCR results in establishing a diagnosis or exclusion of COVID-19 infection. IgM and IgG are the two major antibodies assessed by serologic testing.
