Coronavirus Antibody Testing in Worcester MA

Coronavirus Antibody Testing in Worcester MA

AFC Urgent Care Worcester now has the capability to perform coronavirus antibody testing. The test, known as SARS-CoV-2 AB, is performed through a blood draw and can detect antibodies developed from past infection with coronavirus. Results of the test are available within 48 hours from our urgent care center.

Requirements for coronavirus antibody testing

Coronavirus antibody testing can only be performed on patients who have been asymptomatic for at least fourteen days. Patients experiencing a fever, cough or shortness of breath cannot be tested.

What’s the difference between COVID-19 diagnostic testing and coronavirus antibody testing?

COVID-19 diagnostic testing is performed via a nasal swab and can detect active cases of the COVID-19 virus in symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. Antibody testing can only detect past infection in asymptomatic patients.

What do the results of my antibody test mean?

A positive antibody test indicates exposure to coronavirus. However, research is still being done to determine the effect of antibodies against the active virus and whether or not they provide protection against further infection. A negative antibody test indicates that you have not been exposed to coronavirus, but you may have been exposed too recently for antibodies to develop. 
Regardless of what your results indicate, it is critical to make sure you continue to follow local and state health and safety regulations. This includes wearing a mask, washing your hands and practicing social distancing. For more information on antibody testing, please check the CDC website for the latest updates.
