Antibody testing is designed for persons who suspect that they may have been previously infected with the COVID virus. Most patients that have had the disease previously have been found to produce the IgG antibody.
Testing should be carried out fourteen days or more following exposure or onset of symptoms.
Please note; it is not yet fully known if an individual with a positive result and also showing the presence of IgG levels following infection with COVID-19 will be protected, either fully or partially from future infection, or the duration of immunity may last.
Therefore, all guidelines regarding social distancing and personal protection should still be adhered to regardless of a positive antibody testing result.
Please continue to refrain from personal contact with persons experiencing COVID symptoms such as coughs or a high temperature!
