You can test positive for a long time after recovering. Most people can return to work 10 days after first onset of symptoms and 72 hrs w/o fever with no fever reducing medications.

A friend of mine took about 20+ days to get a negative test result. Another buddy had a negative test result after 5 days.

I had a mild case and still tested positive with a PCR test 16 days later. My work wouldn’t let me return until I had a negative. I talked to my Dr office and was told to go get a quick test. 15 minutes after the test, I had a negative and went back to work. She said I could still test positive with a PCR for up to several months because of the antibodies.

Went 3 weeks with mine. Only thing I had was a small cough. First doctor thought it was from welding at work.

We had guys test positive for 2 hitches after first positive test. That’s 4 months. That was back at the peak of the first fiasco. Now they don’t even test us unless we’re displaying symptoms or close contact.

Thatís been the standard lately. No negative test required due to positives popping 20 days later. Said after 10 days no symptoms get back to work.

CDC doesn't recommend waiting for negative test results after having COVID as some will continue to test positive for up to six months after infection but not be contagious.

I got covid a few weeks ago, my work wanted a negative test before I could return. Doc told me if that's the case you will probably be off the rest of the year. He wrote a letter stating CDC recommends if vaccinated 10 days from the first positive test. If not vaccinated 14 days from first positive test.

Use a Neti pot twice a day 3 days before testing and you should come back negative. My dr. had me do this and it worked. He said that there will be so much dead virus in your sinuses that you'll still test positive. Clean out your sinuses and you should be good to go.

All kidding aside, I have a local customer, chemical plant, their numbers went through the roof the Aug 28th for some reason,,,, Maybe coincides with the Dove Opener on Sept 1 and the Labor Day weekend?? Just an observation on my part,,,,

Those guys know how to work the system.
