Labette Co. Resident Tests Both Positive and Negative for Covid-19


There have been questions recently surrounding a Labette County resident who tested both positive and negative for the Coronavirus.


KSNF reports that Cytocheck Laboratory President, Dr. Ron Leonard, says instances like this one are very rare and that in this case it is because that resident took two tests.


There are two different types of tests that look for Covid-19 and depending on what stage the virus is in, it could vary from one test to the other.


You could potentially have Covid-19 when you're getting tested but if the virus isn't in the right stages than the test could still show up negative.


Recommendations are if you do suspect that you are becoming ill to stay at home and call your local healthcare provider for your next steps.


The Covid-19 Clinic located at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center can be reached by calling 620-688-6566 and it is open Monday through Friday.
