Since the COVID-19 virus can live in your body for up to 3 months, it is not recommend that you take another COVID-19 test until 3 months AFTER your first positive test. You do not need a negative test in order to return to work.
You should schedule a second COVID-19 test if you develop new COVID-19 symptoms after you started to feel better
The ACTIV-2 Study is a clinical trial that tests different medicines to see if they are safe and can help treat adults diagnosed with COVID-19. The study is seeking volunteers who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last seven days and are showing symptoms. ACTIV-2 is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and lasts roughly six months.
NOTE: NEVHC health centers are not study cites. Study participants would have to travel to Northridge for the nearest study site.
