Get an antibody test
Antibody tests can detect if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 and have since developed antibodies to the virus. A clinician will draw your blood and send it to a lab. Despite what you may have heard, the presence of antibodies doesn’t necessarily mean you’re immune to COVID-19. Results may take several days.
