Find out if you were infected with COVID-19
Antibody testing is one way to answer the question, "Did I already have COVID-19?" You may be wondering if that sickness you had earlier this year was COVID-19. Maybe you traveled and later found it was a hot spot. Or you just wonder if it's possible you caught the virus and never had any symptoms. Knowing the answer is an important piece of information as we enter the next phase of the pandemic – for you and for public health authorities.
While there is still a lot of research being conducted about whether or not having antibodies means you are immune from getting COVID-19 again, getting an antibody test now will arm you with valuable knowledge about your own health.
Getting a COVID-19 antibody test is simple. Antibody tests are available in all 50 states either through your local provider or national laboratories.
There are hundreds of locations across the country that offer antibody testing. Contact your doctor or local healthcare provider directly to learn more about how to get an antibody test.
You can request a test directly through a national laboratory location. All that may be required is completing a quick, simple questionnaire. To make an appointment or get more information, visit:
