Published December 22, 2021

WGRZ-TV interviewed Timothy Murphy, SUNY Distinguished Professor and senior associate dean for clinical and translational research in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB, at length about at-home tests for COVID-19. Murphy said, “A positive at-home test means it’s highly likely that you are infected. A negative test does not necessarily rule out that you have the virus.” He noted that it is recommended that people take a test every day for a few days prior to a holiday gathering.
