Response from Ms. Southall

HI The testing guidelines change as the sensitivity of testing gets more sophisticated. The guidelines currently are if you test 90 days post exposure with no exposures happening during that 90 day time frame you test is conclusive.

I hope this clarifies the information for you.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
