What does it mean if I have a positive test result from the Lucira COVID-19 Test Kit?

A positive test result for COVID-19 indicates that RNA from SARS-CoV-2 was detected, and therefore the patient is infected with the virus and presumed to be contagious. Test results should always be considered in the context of clinical observations and epidemiological data (such as local prevalence rates and current outbreak/epicenter locations) in making a final diagnosis and patient management decisions. Patient management should be made by a healthcare provider and follow current CDC guidelines. The LUCIRA COVID-19 Test Kit has been designed to minimize the likelihood of false positive test results. However, it is still possible that this test can give a false positive result.
