How do I get an antibody test?
There are two kinds of tests for the coronavirus (COVID-19): the antibody test and the viral test.
- With the antibody test, you can be tested to see if you previously had the virus. This can help medical professionals track the spread of the virus in your area and beyond.
- The viral test can help determine whether a person currently has the virus. The most common form is the nasopharyngeal swab (a simple nasal swab and test). We also offer rapid tests which are subject to availability.
We offer these tests at Medical Access. If you are thinking about getting tested familiarize yourself with the process here.
