Sanford Health low on COVID-19 testing supplies
Hospital says to trust at-home COVID tests if positive.
FARGO — Local doctors say those who take a COVID-19 test at home and get a positive result, don't need to reconfirm the test with them.
Vice President of Sanford Health Dr. Doug Griffin says they are going through a high demand of tests and supplies are low.
However, Dr. Griffin says people who test negative on an at-home test and want to double check can still come in.
"Because the supplies are so very, very limited, we've really gone to a shed, so your your clinician could give you some feedback on that. But if you're otherwise young, unhealthy, mild symptoms, the advice is probably going to stay home," Griffin said.
