JETMORE OFFERS CLARIFICATION ON FALSE NEGATIVE COVID-19 TESTS

(Richmond, IN)--Wayne County Health Officer Dr. David Jetmore offered clarification Wednesday on Covid-19 testing after some confusion connected to the start of Centerville schools.  Jetmore said that positive results from either PCR or Rapid testing is nearly 100% accurate.  But, the PCR test can give a false negative up to 40% of the time if it’s done too early in the infection.  Jetmore added that the department will "always take the more cautious route" in dealing with someone who may have the virus.
