Loeffler, who — along with Republican U.S. Sen. David Perdue, also of Georgia — faces a Jan. 5 runoff that will decide which party controls the Senate, initially tested negative Friday morning with a rapid-results test before two campaign events she held with Vice President Mike Pence.
She also took a PCR test Friday, which came back positive later in the day, campaign spokesman Stephen Lawson said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The senator received inconclusive results after taking an additional test Saturday.
While no coronavirus tests are completely accurate all of the time, the rapid-results tests tend to be less accurate than PCR tests, which take longer for results, some experts say.
