dc.description.abstractRapid antigen tests for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) are effective tools for the diagnosis of acute infection, particularly when used serially. The percentage of rapid antigen tests with false positive results is reported to be less than 1%. However, we have observed persons who repeatedly test positive with rapid antigen tests despite concurrent negative molecular tests; this infrequent phenomenon occurs predominantly among women and persons with autoimmune disorders.en_US
