I tested positive due COVID on Tuesday, but I felt fine after 3 days. When should I retake the test so that it can be negative?

You know who you should ask about this? A doctor. This isn’t the right forum. You’ll get lots of opinions, with varying levels of being informed.

Trying to ask a doctor this question right now would be half impossible. Go try to get an appointment right now.

Depends on which test you are planning on taking.

Thank you I’d like to take the rapid testing since my flight is on the 11th

Doesn’t really matter you can stop isolating after 5. I tested every other day trying to make it to Christmas but tested positive until day 8 just as an anecdote.

Thanks for sharing! I’m hoping to make my flight 11th

CDC isn’t recommending testing after you’re confirmed positive. You can continue to test positive for 3 months.

Ok thank you I’ll look into this!

The 5 day isolation from the CDC is a joke. I'd recommend getting a PCR test before flying. "Feeling better" is all relative and you might still be making those little covid babies by dozen.

Yes that is a possibility but usually that isn't the norm. Some ppl test positive for a week after recovery and others can test negative soon after. There isn't a black/white here until some time has passed but since OP is getting on a plane, a test can at least provide some direction. While I understand that the onus of making this decision has been unforturnately outsourced on to us, not taking precautions is what has landed us in this covid soup. This variant may not be that deadly (or whatever BS the CDC is saying today) but the chances of the next variant (which will definitely show up) doing damage are pretty high.

I know it depends but I took an at home test on the 5th day and it came back negative.

Almost 2 years and this question still being asked? I had OG covid and I tested positive even after 2 weeks

C1 why does it matter that it’s been 2 years, people should feel free to ask questions when unsure. We may not be medical experts but with Covid everyone’s experience has varied thus far.
