DIAGNOSTIC VS. ANTIBODY TESTING

Diagnostic testing is for those who think they may currently have COVID-19. The diagnostic test will tell the patient and health provider if the patient is currently infected with COVID-19.  Antibody testing is for those who have had or may have had COVID-19 and no longer have symptoms. The antibody test will help you know if you had been infected with COVID-19 and formed antibodies.

COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing

The CDC has developed a self-check system on their website for those who think they might have the Coronavirus and require testing. Click here to self-check.
