    BOSTON (CBS) – A Carlisle man tells WBZ he thought a negative rapid 15-minute Covid-19 test was all he needed to avoid quarantine after vacation. But he was not all set. While the FDA said positive results with rapid tests are accurate, negative rapid tests may not be. “A negative isn’t always a negative,” said Kyle Koeppler, who works in lab testing and diagnostics at World Back to Work. “If it is a negative test you should immediately get tested with a higher sensitivity PCR-based test to confirm that it’s really a negative test.” But some say people who get the rapid test have no idea that they need a second test. “How many people are walking around...
    ATHENS (Reuters) - A cruise ship carrying about 920 passengers docked at Piraeus port near Athens early on Tuesday and a repeat test for 12 of its crew members was negative for the coronavirus, a Greek health ministry official said. The Mein Shiff 6, operated by TUI Cruises, departed from Heraklion in Crete on Sunday with all passengers having tested negative before boarding. But sample tests on 150 crew members out of a total of 666, detected 12 infections, and the ship had to return to Piraeus, the country's biggest port, with better access to health services and equipped to deal with any emergency. TUI Cruises said late on Monday that a second round of tests held on board showed...

    PARIS (AP) — A tennis coach who failed a coronavirus test for the French Open, forcing his player’s withdrawal from qualifying for the Grand Slam tournament, sharply criticized organizers on Tuesday for their handling of the case. Damir Dzumhur, a former top-30 player from Bosnia now ranked 114th, traveled to Paris for this week’s qualifying tournament. But his coach, Petar Popovic, failed pre-tournament testing this past weekend. Dzumhur’s test was negative but he was excluded from the draw because they had shared a room together, the coach told The Associated Press in a phone interview from his native Serbia. Popovic said organizers informed him Saturday of the failed test. He said a tournament doctor told him his result was...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed course again Friday, now recommending that people get tested if they come into contact with someone who has coronavirus, even if they are asymptomatic. "Due to the significance of asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic transmission, this guidance further reinforces the need to test asymptomatic persons, including close contacts of a person with documented SARS-CoV-2 infection," the CDC's updated guidance says. Close contact means coming "within 6 feet of a person with documented SARS-CoV-2 infection for at least 15 minutes." The CDC also recommends that even if you test negative, you should still self-isolate for two weeks because a "single negative test does not mean you will remain negative at any time point after that test."...

    (CBS SF) – For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Bay Area travelers looking to vacation in Hawaii may soon be able to travel to the islands without undergoing the state’s 14-day quarantine. According to a statement by Gov. David Ige, the state will implement its pre-travel testing program on October 15th.

Visitors must also undergo a temperature check upon arrival in Hawaii. Anyone who is unable to provide proof must still undergo the quarantine, which forces travelers to shelter-in-place outside of medical...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP) — No one was more surprised by his initial COVID-19 positive test than San Francisco Giants outfielder Alex Dickerson. He was completely baffled. How could it be? “It came as a complete shock and at no point did I ever think it was real,” Dickerson said, “At no point did I actually believe it.” The team received news of a positive test result on Friday night moments before he was set to play at San Diego. The game was postponed and Dickerson got pulled off the field and immediately was placed in isolation at Petco Park. But he was certain there was no way he could have COVID-19. He had tested negative a day earlier in...

Dickerson has now been cleared to play, and is hitting second and playing left field in the first game of Sunday doubleheader. He is available to play in second seven-inning game as well. “It came as a complete shock,”...
    SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) — El Salvador said Saturday it plans to reopen airports for international flights starting Sept. 19, but with a twist: incoming passengers will be required to show a negative PCR coronavirus test no more than three days old. Anyone lacking the test would be denied entry. The new measures were contained in a notice to airlines published by the country’s port authorities. It was unclear whether the requirement would apply to Salvadoran citizens, who have a constitutional right to re-enter their country. The Central American country has enacted some of the region’s strictest pandemic measures, like closing borders, imposing a national quarantine and dispatching police and the army to detain violators. Some of...

    PARIS (Reuters) - French Prime Minister Jean Castex has tested negative for COVID-19 again and will come out of self-isolation on Saturday, a week after being in contact with someone who had a positive result, his office said. Castex had already tested negative for COVID-19 since sharing a car last weekend with the director of the Tour de France cycle race, who later tested positive. France is grappling with a resurgence in coronavirus cases, and on Friday the prime minister outlined plans to speed up testing and toughen measures in certain cities as the government seeks to avoid a repeat of the spring's nationwide lockdown.

    Eating at restaurants or going to a bar may put people at greater risk for catching coronavirus, a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report suggests. In fact, people who tested positive for coronavirus were about twice as likely to have recently dined out, compared to those who tested negative, the CDC found. Meanwhile, New York City restaurants will be allowed to open indoor dining at 25 percent their capacity on September 30, and bars in Florida will be open at 50 percent capacity starting Monday.  Struggling food and beverage businesses in the hard-hit areas are thrilled, but the CDC's data suggests that going to restaurants is linked to higher odds of catching coronavirus than riding the bus,...

    HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finland will ease tight restrictions on entry as it tries to attract back business travellers and tourists ahead of winter, allowing arrivals from countries with higher rates of coronavirus infection including its neighbour Sweden. Previously, Finland has barred arrivals from countries with more than 8-10 cases of coronavirus infection per 100,000 people, a threshold which excluded travellers from many European countries. The exclusion of Swedes was particularly disruptive, as the neighbours are close allies. From Sept 19, the threshold for countries to gain unrestricted entry will rise to 25 cases per 100,000. Travellers from countries where the rate is higher will also be allowed in if they present a negative test result. They must then remain under...

    Knowing when to get tested for the new coronavirus before seeing friends and family can be confusing, especially as the nation lacks a cohesive approach. Likely compounding any confusion is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recent change to its testing guidance, which led to widespread criticism and further uncertainty around COVID-19 testing in general. But as the pandemic drags on, some may be experiencing so-called “caution fatigue” and feel emboldened to see friends and family whom they have been separated from for months — making it important to understand the circumstances under which a COVID-19 test may be necessary. “The challenge has been with testing — it's not always easy to do and not always readily available in many areas," Dr. John Whyte, the...

    LINCOLN (CBS13) — There’s a new option for COVID-19 testing at a Lincoln Urgent Care on top of the traditional nasal swab test. “We were lucky enough to be one of the first people that has a new Sofia 2 antigen machine,” Doctor Eric Ellis at Lincoln Urgent Care said. “It’s a new technology which measures the antigen, which part of the virus itself.

    Abbot Laboratories It’s an antigen test, as opposed to the slower lab-based PCR testing that has kept people waiting hours, days and weeks for results, and uses a lateral-flow approach similar to home pregnancy test kits. According to the Mayo Clinic, antigen tests work by detecting certain proteins specific to this virus, and work more quickly, but have an increased chance of false-negative results. Based on a clinical study supported by US research universities, Abbott said its test showed sensitivity of 97.1 percent (correct diagnoses of people who have the disease) and specificity of 98.5 percent (correctly ruling out people who don’t have it), “in patients suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within the first seven days of symptom...
