Utility of repeat testing for COVID-19: Laboratory stewardship when the stakes are high

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

As the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to circulate, testing strategies are of the utmost importance. Given national shortages of testing supplies, personal protective equipment, and other hospital resources, diagnostic stewardship is necessary to aid in resource management. We report the low utility of serial testing in a low-prevalence setting.
