SHIELD FAQ - If a person tests positive after testing positive 60 days prior, should they quarantine?


It is not uncommon for tests to remain positive or be intermittently positive for several weeks following a COVID illness and these individuals are not infectious to others. When a positive test occurs less than 3 months after the person’s symptom onset of their most recent illness, it is possible that the positive test represents a new infection, or a persistently positive test associated with the previous infection.
