The test can sometimes show a negative result even if you are infected SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This can happen if:
● It is too early in infection for the test to detect the virus.
● There was a problem with your sample or the test itself. A false negative result on this test may be more likely to occur if your sample was not shipped back to our lab the same day it was collected.
● If your results are negative and you’re having symptoms, continue to follow isolation
precautions and ask your healthcare provider if you need further testing.
● If your results are negative and you don’t have any symptoms, continue to monitor for any
symptoms up to 14 days after your last possible exposure.
