The antibody test is performed on a patient’s blood sample. If the antibody is detected, it is likely that the person was previously infected.
Patients visiting the testing site should wear a mask.
The test is not for people who currently think they have coronavirus. If you are showing symptoms, contact your health care provider to determine if you need to be tested for the virus.
