What do my Covid-19 test results mean?

Nasal swab.  This is the test used to determine active infection.


Negative: no viral genetic material was detected in your nose/throat. This could be a true negative (you are not infected with the virus that causes covid-19) or a false negative result (you are infected but your test was negative). You may have a false negative if you were tested too soon or too late and there was not enough viral material to detect.


Positive: viral genetic material was detected in your nose/throat indicating that you have been infected with the virus that causes covid-19. If you have a positive test you are required to self isolate at home. If you never developed symptoms you can discontinue self isolation 10 days after your positive test. If you developed symptoms you can discontinue self isolation 10 days after your first symptom began AND no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications AND improvement in other symptoms.


People can have detectable genetic material/positive test for days, weeks or months. For this reason the CDC does not recommend repeat tests for 3 months for anyone with a history of a positive test.


NOTE: Health Care Coverage varies – please check with your health insurance company for policy benefits. Self pay rate for Antigen Swab Test is $100.
