If you are told you have a positive viral test, most likely you currently have an active COVID-19 infection, and you can give the virus to others. Follow instructions from your provider about isolation and when you can leave home.
If you are told you have a negative viral test, most likely you do NOT currently have an active COVID-19 infection. However, there is a small possibility the result is a false negative. Continue taking steps to protect yourself and prevent spread of the virus.
