You don’t have to get tested if you don’t have symptoms. If you do get tested, then wait at least 8 days from when you were exposed (longer is better). It takes time for the SARS CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 to become detectable, even with the sensitive tests being used. For example, getting a test the day after an exposure gives you a 100% chance of a negative test even if you later develop infection. If you were within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more, then you should quarantine for 14 days from when you were exposed and stay separated from other people in your household. If you develop symptoms, then get tested—especially if you have obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic lung disease or other chronic conditions.
Do not go to the emergency department unless you have a medical emergency, such as difficulty breathing.
Yes! We do offer the COVID-19 antibody test. It is a blood draw that gives results in about 5 days.
Antibody testing may help determine whether you have had COVID-19 in the past and now have antibodies to help protect against the virus. Antibodies are proteins the immune system produces that are critical for fighting and clearing out a virus.This test is performed after full recovery from COVID-19 as these levels usually become measurable around two weeks following an infection. Antibody testing may also help one know if they have had an asymptomatic course of COVID-19 during the past 1-2 months as levels begin to rise 15-40 days following an infection.
