Who Should Be Tested?

Anyone experiencing symptoms should be tested. Regardless of vaccination status, residents or employees of correction facilities and homeless shelters should be tested after a known exposure. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, chills, muscle aches, or loss of taste or smell. 

We encourage anyone who has been identified as a close contact to a person with COVID-19 to get tested. Close contacts with symptoms should get tested as soon as possible. Close contacts with no symptoms should get tested during their quarantine period, testing no sooner than 3 days after exposure and, ideally, testing 5-7 days after exposure.

Understanding Antibody Test Results 

Antibody tests are NOT used to diagnose current COVID-19 infections

What does a positive antibody test mean?

A positive result means it is possible that you have recently or previously had COVID-19. There is also a chance that the positive result is wrong, known as a false positive. False-positive tests may occur because antibody tests may detect other coronaviruses, such as those that cause the common cold. They may also be a false positive if an area doesn't have many COVID-19 infections, as these types of tests work best in populations with higher rates of infection.

Does a positive antibody test mean that I am immune to COVID-19?

A positive antibody test does not necessarily mean you are immune from SARS-CoV-2 infection, as it is not known whether having antibodies will protect you from getting infected again. It also does not indicate whether you can infect other people with SARS-CoV-2.

I received a COVID-19 vaccination. Do I need an antibody test to know if I am immune to COVID-19?

Antibody tests are NOT recommended to determine your level of immunity or protection from COVID-19.
