Covid 19 RTK-Ag positive for 10days even after quarantine am I still contagious

Hi I have been contracted with COVID-19 and I have quarantined for 10days but my RTK antigen test has been positive everyday throughout the quarantine period. Since my quarantine period has ended but I still test positive for RTK antigen am I still contagious towards others? My symptoms are mild and has recovered after the 6th day of quarantine, now I’m symptom free but I am not sure if I should be going to work due to the positive self test

Hello and good afternoon.
Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your problem. I will try to help you.

Based on your description, swab test results can be positive because the virus is still present in your body and also most individuals will still be positive when there are antibodies to the COVID-19 virus. You need to discuss with your doctor about these results for further action and we cannot give a final word based on test results alone as more information needs to be known and other factors need to be taken into account.

If you are required to quarantine, you can work from home unless your job requires you to be at work.

This is just our general description of your problem. We recommend that you see a doctor so that an examination can be done and treatment can be given to you.

I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
