RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A teen recently discharged from Hallmark Youthcare, a residential treatment facility in Richmond for adolescents with emotional and behavioral issues, tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival at a different facility.
Di Hayes, the Chief Administrative Officer of Hallmark Youthcare says the teen tested positive when they took a rapid test at the new facility and that they had not shown any symptoms of COVID-19 while at Hallmark. She says she believes they will also use a traditional COVID-19 test to confirm the case.
According to Harvard Health Publishing, the reported rate of false negative results from rapid antigen testings is as high as 50% and the false positive rate is near 0%.
Hayes says that no one in facility has shown any symptoms of COVID-19 and they have not had any cases since the pandemic started. She says the facility has followed all CDC guidelines and has not allowed any visitors since March.
