On Friday, July 31, 2020, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting if your coronavirus test comes back positive, it may be because you have a common cold, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Posts sharing this claim are mistaking CDC guidance on antibody tests for the health agency's guidance on tests for the virus. A common cold alone would not result in a positive COVID-19 test.
