KINGMAN – A few minutes before 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, Kingman Regional Medical Center issued a press release stating there is an “inconclusive” COVID-19 test result in Kingman.

“Medical providers recently took a swab sample from a patient with respiratory symptoms who came to the KRMC emergency room,” the press release reads. “The sample was subsequently sent to a reference laboratory for testing. The test results were returned today, which were inconclusive.”

This means that COVID-19 has not been ruled out, nor has it been confirmed definitively, KRMC stated.

“At this time, this is not a presumptive positive nor a confirmed positive. However, the patient has been advised to self-quarantine and the case should be managed as positive until further testing determines conclusive results,” the release continued.
