It is conclusive anytime after 3 months so you are safe.

Yes, that is conclusive and you are negative.  As stated, all tests are conclusive after 3 months post exposure.

Thank you so much, so just to confirm I don't need any lab testing with blood drawn and oraquick at 3 months is as good as any antibody test in the market which uses blood for testing.
Any I forgot to mention I took 2 oraquick test and both are negative. This hopefully should take care of any false negative etc
There is nothing left to confirm if you reread the advice carefully.
