Your questions answered about COVID-19

Should I get a test for COVID-19? Am I at risk? There are still a lot of lingering questions about the virus that causes COVID-19. Dr. Peter McGough, family physician and head of the UW Neighborhood Clinics, provides clarity. The most important thing, he said, in the fight against the virus is to stay home.

"What we do now in terms of social distancing, quarantining and other measures is one of the most important things we can do now," he said. "As incredibly boring as staying home can become especially if you’ve got small kids or live alone, it’s very boring, but it’s absolutely lifesaving for everyone else and yourself."
