We’ve heard questions from social media about COVID-19 tests and false positives and false negatives. Here’s what to know.
If you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and test negative, you should continue to practice safe behavior like wearing a mask, washing your hands and physically distancing from other people.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and test negative, you should continue to isolate from others and consider retesting in one to two days. Getting vaccinated and boosted is the most important thing you can do to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and the risk of severe infection.
