    What if you test negative? A negative at-home test result means that the test did not find the virus, and you may have a lower risk of spreading COVID-19 to others. Check your test kit's instructions for specific next steps. If you test negative , you should test again within a few days, at least 24 hours between tests. https://www.covid.gov/tests
