The patient is clinically well.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] Clinicians should have a mechanism to contact the family and initiate antibiotics if the back-up throat culture is positive.[cdc.gov] Also may do a rapid strep test which is less sensitive(80-90%) and as specific(95%) as the throat culture. If rapid test is positive treatment may be initiated.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]
