What you should know about a negative COVID-19 test result:


  • If I get a negative result, I can see friends and family again and not worry about spreading the virus


  • A person can be asymptomatic and test negative and still have the virus; unknowingly passing it on to others


  • If I am exposed to someone with COVID-19 today I will test positive for the virus tomorrow


  • It can take 3-5 days after exposure before a test result will show up as positive

Regardless of your COVID-19 test result, you must quarantine for length of time advised by your public health authority
