Hello.

Thanks for the question.

It depends on you exposure.

It can take up to 12 weeks after exposure for the test to be positive.

If you have not been exposed in the interim, then yes, you would be in the clear.

I was exposed back in April so it'll be 15 weeks tomorrow. I've had zero symptoms

The person that exposed them to me had them for 10 years and has never passed them in the past

Then I would say you are in the clear.
