What does it mean if your Nasal Swab test came back negative for COVID-19?

Persons with possible exposure, a NEGATIVE COVID-19 test and who have not had any symptoms: 

  • Self-monitor under the supervision of their employer’s occupational health program.

  • Wear a face mask at all times while in the workplace for 14 days after last exposure.

  • Maintain 6 feet and practice social distancing as work duties permit in the workplace. 

  • Retest if symptoms become present.

Persons who tested NEGATIVE for COVID-19 and have had symptoms and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions: 

  • At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery (defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications) 

  • AND improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath)

  • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared

DoctorNow encourages you to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and use good hand washing techniques. 

 

Due the volume of patients that we are testing and having positive results come back on, it is very challenging for our providers to go over individual results with you.  If you would like dedicated time with a provider to discuss additional concerns, you may schedule a telemedicine visit with by calling our clinic at 818-349-9966. 

We are having a longer than normal wait times for our phone operators as they are filtering continuous COVID question calls from the community.
