LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) — People waiting for the results of their COVID-19 test should self-isolate if possible to keep the virus from potentially spreading. That's what some health experts in Louisville are saying.

With greater demand for COVID-19 testing, results are taking longer, and doctors and public health officials are worried that people are getting back to their daily lives while they wait.

Officials say this could lead to more people spreading the virus. Experts say you should self-isolate while you wait, if possible, whether you have symptoms or not.
