Important Highlights
CDC wants to hear more about repeat positive COVID-19 tests
Providers continue to report seeing a number of patients with recurring positive COVID-19 test results beyond 90 days from initial infection. Confusions persists in trying to understand whether these are new COVID-19 cases. CDC is interest in hearing more from the field about these repeat positives which present challenges with institutional protocols that require re-testing of patients (e.g., nursing homes that require re-testing for residents returning from procedures such as dialysis; acute care settings requiring re-testing). You can send your feedback to info@shea-online.org. Please indicate in your response if you do not want your identity to be disclosed beyond SHEA staff.
