Kingman, Arizona, March 18, 2020 – Medical providers recently took a swab sample from a patient with respiratory symptoms who came to the KRMC emergency room. The sample was subsequently sent to a reference laboratory for testing. The test results were returned today, which were inconclusive. This means that COVID-19 has not been ruled out, nor has it been confirmed definitively. At this time, this is not a presumptive positive nor a confirmed positive. However, the patient has been advised to self-quarantine and the case should be managed as positive until further testing determines conclusive results.
