ACT Health Investigating Covid Testing Results


Up to 11 people who visited a pathology provider were notified that they tested positive in the ACT yesterday, but 10 of them have since returned negative results.

An ACT Health Spokesperson confirmed that further investigations were underway as to what caused the indeterminate result.

“ACT Health arranged for urgent retesting of these individuals and ten people remaining in the ACT have since returned a negative test result,” they said.

“One person has travelled to NSW; they have been retested and are isolating, pending a test result. At this time, there are no positive cases of COVID-19 in the ACT and no exposure sites.

“Throughout the pandemic, the ACT Government has worked to communicate quickly and effectively with the ACT community whenever there is anything Canberrans need to know.

“Should there be a positive case in the ACT, we will provide information and advice to the community as quickly as possible. Work is ongoing with the pathology provider to determine the reasons for the indeterminate results that were reported as positive.”

The ACT recorded 1,118 test results in the previous 24 hours, according to the ACT Health daily update.
