About Our COVID-19 Antibody Test
This serology blood test identifies the presence of antibodies that indicate that a person had prior infection to COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2). A positive result to this antibody (IgG) test indicates that you may have had previous infection to COVID-19 and your body has developed antibodies.
Although It may take up to 14 days after the onset of symptoms for antibodies to be developed within the body, 91% of people develop such antibodies within the first 10-14 days. Some people infected with COVID- 19 will never exhibit symptoms but will have a detectable antibody response. While there is belief that the presence of antibodies may provide immunity to future infections, there is not yet enough data to state this conclusively. It is possible that you may still be infected with COVID-19 even after positive antibody test.
Regardless of your results, you should continue to follow CDC and NY DOH precautions including wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and proper hand hygiene.
