You will be able to get your results between 4-7 business days after testing, depending on lab capacity or any unforeseen circumstances.

***Disclaimer: Certain insurers may require a copayment.

Can I be tested for coronavirus antibodies?

If you have been asymptomatic for at least two weeks, you are eligible to be tested for coronavirus antibodies. Symptoms include dry cough, fever, body aches and congestion.

Differences between antibody testing and diagnostic testing

Diagnostic testing is performed with a nasal swab, which is able to detect the active COVID-19 virus. This test is typically performed on symptomatic patients. Antibody testing is performed through a blood draw and detects past infection.

What do my results mean?

A positive antibody test indicates exposure to coronavirus and development of an immune response. Currently, research is being performed to determine whether the presence of antibodies means that a patient has an immunity or protection against further infection. For the latest updates on how antibodies are being tested, visit the CDC website.

Negative results indicate no exposure to COVID-19. However, you may have been infected too recently for antibodies to develop.

You must continue to comply by local health and safety guidelines. For the most up-to-date information on practices followed in Connecticut, please visit the state department website.
