I had a rapid test and was instructed to be tested again even though the result was negative. What does this mean?

All COVID-19 tests, rapid or other, may require follow up testing. For example, if your virus level was low (this can be the case very early into your illness) the test may not be able to detect the virus. Follow the instructions of your doctor or test administrator to stay healthy – even if that means taking second test at home or at a testing site or health care facility.
