Frequently Asked Questions

I want to get COVID-19 testing. What are my options?
Currently, there are two different types of tests that are used for different purposes. Viral (molecular or antigen) tests and Antibody (serology) tests. Viral tests will tell you if you have a current (active) COVID-19 infection and are often performed via nasal swab collection. Antibody tests may tell you if you have had a previous (not active) COVID-19 infection and are performed via a blood sample.
 
Who should get tested and when?
Viral tests: Anyone of any age can get tested based on guidelines. The CDC has guidance for who should be tested, but testing is based off recommendations provided by your state and local health departments or healthcare providers. Ideally, you would be tested if you are showing symptoms related to COVID-19 disease, if you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or need a screening for travel. If you want to get tested for possible active COVID-19 infection contact your healthcare provider or visit your state or local health department website to look for latest testing information.

Antibody tests: Currently, you must seek this testing from your physician. If you are symptomatic, you should be tested using a viral test to see if your active symptoms are due to a COVID-19 infection. Second, you should wait 14 days or more after you have had symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19 to receive an antibody test. Antibodies take 1-3 weeks to appear in your blood in a large enough concentration to be detected.
 

PLEASE REMEMBER: Regardless of your test results, you must protect yourself and others from COVID-19. This includes:

  • Washing your hands often
  • Avoiding close contact (maintain at least 6 ft apart from others)
  • Wearing a face covering while in public places where social distancing is not possible
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
  • Covering coughs and sneezes
  • Cleaning and disinfecting the space around you.
