@Nathan - exactly. Nearly every positive antigen becomes a positive PCR, whereas the vast majority of negative antigens do not come in for PCR testing.
A lot of positive antigen tests are not being followed up by PCR confirmation (which is ok right now given how high community rates are)
right. Great question worthy of more discussion, Carolyn
To @Nathan’s question: PSB is not requiring PCR confirmation of a pos Ag test.
@Valerie, agreed about snfs issues
The supply of Ag tests is strictly limited - as in there are physically not enough to five them to everyone who needs them. Even with $$$$ funding, we will not have enough tests to use them the way that all would like.
And PSB and town ARE trying to buy them to increase access.
And that was before vaccine. With Vaccine, the infectious period shortens still further.
even though the news for kids is scary the absolute risk and numbers for an otherwise healthy kid are extremely low.
Another thing we have been discussing is keeping our focus on TTS program and using purchased rapid tests for vaccinated individuals who are not currently eligible for Test and Stay.
