Response from Ms. Southall
HI The guidelines for testing are to be tested at 90 days post exposure and as long as there were no other exposures during this time the results are conclusive. The Tri Dot is accurate and as accurate as other testing including actual blood draws. I would recommend that if you are still experiences symptoms that you follow up with your health care provider for evaluation.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
