COVID-19 Antibody Testing

According to the CDC, COVID-19 is a new respiratory illness caused by the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. You can use an antibody test to see if you’ve already had COVID-19. It takes a while for antibodies to form. If you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, wait about three weeks before getting an antibody test. 

Since the COVID-19 antibody test is a serologic test, you’ll need to have blood drawn. Your blood sample will then be tested to see if it contains SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. However, this test won’t tell you if you currently have COVID-19. Call American Family Care about a virtual or in-person consultation with a doctor.

 

American Family Care has:

  • Socially-distanced and sanitized waiting areas 
  • COVID-19 tests
    • Antibody Test
    • Rapid Swab Test 
    • At-Home Testing
  • Walk-In COVID-19 vaccinations 

 

Understanding Antibody Testing Results. 

It can take 1–3 days to get the results of an antibody test.  

  • A negative test means your blood DID NOT have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
  • A positive test means your blood DID have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.

*No test is 100% accurate. False positives and false negatives can and do happen. 

 

Protect Yourself. Protect Others.

  • Wear a Mask.
    • Cover your nose and mouth. 
  • Wash Your Hands. 
    • 20 seconds with soap and water.
