COVID test: You may still be contagious and a repeat PCR test is indicated. Watch for recurrence of symptoms, have a flu vaccine and stay isolated until screening is negative and you have no symptoms for at least three days. The cough and mucus may be resolving, but as long as you have a cough, please avoid contact with others.
