HOUSTON (CW39) — If you’re considering getting tested for COVID-19 because you celebrated Thanksgiving with extended family and friends, you should wait about 5 days after Turkey day.

It takes that long after exposure for there to be enough virus in your body for the test to detect. You should get tested even if you don’t have symptoms — 40% of infected people don’t have any.
