Implications of False Positive SARS-CoV-2 by PCR Test in the Health Care Work Force
The novel nature of the SARS-CoV-2 virus inherently creates a paucity of reliable and validated data. Implementing evidence-based and data-driven protocols have been exceedingly difficult.

Incorporating changes on a frequent, if not daily basis, has led to confusion, frustration and loss of confidence among clinicians across the nation. This report illustrates the negative impact that false-positive COVID-19 results can have on the health delivery workforce and the emotional implications that false-positive results cast on health care providers.
