I have a question. On Tuesday I went to go get tested with my fiance for COVID because we thought his dad may have had it since at his job there were so many infected. We showed no symptoms but to be safe we went. After then I have not seen him just in case. Today I got my results and I was negative but he was positive. Does that mean the virus can still get to me? I was supposed to go back to work tomorrow and I have showed no symptoms. Do I need to get tested again? Like I said since that day I have not seen him.

I understand you are worried about COVID infection. You need to understand that if COVID test result shows positive, then it is sure that the person has the infection, but if the result shows negative that does not prove that the person does not have the infection. The person can still be a asymptomatic carrier of COVID. So, at present scenario with huge number of population affected and you being in close proximity with COVID positive patients, I would suggest you to repeat the test after 7 days if you do not develop any symptoms or earlier itself if you develop any symptoms.
And since your boyfriend has tested positive, you satisfy the criteria of COVID close contact. You need to isolate yourself at home for 2 weeks. And you also need to inform your health officials regarding this.
