POSITIVE ON EXIT TEST

Public Health has issued guidelines and a new online platform for persons to check their eligibility for isolation release when testing POSITIVE for COVID-19 on exit PCR. These guidelines for potential release are only for persons whom have completed their full isolation period, are asymptomatic and are within certain CT values. To check your eligibility, click here. Parameters for persons who require retesting are available here.

ONLY Exit PCR tests from Public Health (HSA) are accepted for isolation release.

NEGATIVE ON EXIT TEST

If you are NEGATIVE on PCR exit, your negative lab result (from Public Health/HSA) can serve as your isolation release letter to employers, school, etc.  If you need an isolation advisory notice or an isolation letter for another reason (ie: for an exit test more than 7 days old) please use the form here.

INCONCLUSIVE – multiple tests performed on the sample and is not showing positive nor negative, making the result ‘inconclusive’. Please send your result to Flu Hotline (flu@hsa.ky) to seek advice on your status from Public Health.

REPREP - the sample has been processed and has been designated for reprocessing in the lab. Persons do not need to take another PCR test. The result will be slightly delayed past the expected timeframe since it must be processed again. No action required until the person receives the PCR final result (ie: negative, positive, inconclusive).
