The PAN-SARS RNA test detects all coronaviruses that can infect humans, including SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19). This type of result is called presumptive positive. This means that you may have COVID-19, or you may have another coronavirus infection. Retesting may be needed to confirm whether or not you specifically have COVID-19.
If you have this type of result, follow up with your healthcare provider for more information about the next steps in your care.
