Covid False positives

Post

4 days after testing positive, Saban tests negative.

Apparently this a known issue.

What is FAU doing to cross check their covid tests?

These are the stories that have some people questioning the science. But I'm happy for coach Sabin

I am not questioning the science, I am questioning the validity of the specific tests they use. Very different

The issue is there is no uniformity to the rules.

FAU has and still is missing multiple players from practice from a positive test, but have followed up with multiple negatives because of the mandatory 14-day quarantine.

Whether it is scheduling or covid testing, the big boys get a different set of rules.

@Voss, I agree with you. I'm putting testing into the science category.  This thing snuck up on everyone. . No guidelines. No plans. We are learning as we go.
