COVID in Guanajuato: How do I know whether or not I should take an anti-coronavirus test?

Leon, Guanajuato.- The Secretary of Health, Daniel Díaz Martínez, called on the rational use of the COVID test.

At a press conference, he emphasized that only it is recommended to apply to people with symptoms of acute respiratory infection as well as adults over 60 years of age with diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and obesity.

Health personnel and security professionals are on the list of those who should apply the test, but it should not be done on asymptomatic individuals, nor as requirements to enter a job or leave isolation.

It is not necessary to take a new test to return to work, nor is it a requirement to access a public or private place, where a public service is provided,” he emphasized.
