Test Results Interpretation

People who test positive for this Lucira Check It COVID test likely have the virus that causes COVID-19 in their nasal swab sample. However, being positive with this test does not necessarily mean that you don’t also have another kind of infection as well. Above all, if you test positive, you should self-isolate and contact your healthcare provider to ask them what to do next.

People who test negative with this test may still have the virus that causes COVID-19. Therefore, people who test negative and still have COVID-19 symptoms should contact their healthcare provider to get follow-up care and possibly a follow-up PCR test.
