How long after having COVID will you test negative?

Now that the government’s widespread testing programs during the pandemic have mostly wound down, and testing is now left mainly up to individuals, or in some cases employers, you may find yourself with a few questions about testing.

A positive COVID test can be incredibly disrupting to your work and home life, even if you are fully vaccinated and remain completely asymptomatic throughout the duration of your time testing positive.

Knowing for how long to isolate, whether to plan for a long time working from home, or whether you should be wearing a mask and avoiding your friends and family members are all important decisions that are affected by how long you test positive for. So, you may be wondering; how long after having COVID will you test negative?

Should I get tested for Covid-19 before Christmas?

For the majority of us, 2020 has been the most challenging year we have ever known. Restrictions to our lives brought about by the emergence of COVID-19 have meant that we haven’t been able to spend time with our families and friends. With vaccine rollouts now beginning, there is at least some light at the end of the tunnel. Managing the next few months will be critical to ensuring that we can face the New Year with confidence and then start to enjoy better times ahead.
