Response from Dr. Frascino


Yep, a negative three-month ELISA and nondetectable quantitative PCR at 10 weeks are definitive, conclusive and YABBA-DABBA-DO-able!


Stay safe and stay well.

By the way, I'm assuming you had these tests "after" your exposure rather than "before," as your questions states!
