Tests for antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 infection. This test indicates if you had COVID-19 in the past. A blood sample is taken and sent to a lab. Results are available in 1 to 3 days. This test is most accurate when at least 14 days have passed since you had symptoms.
For assessment of symptoms and next-step direction, set up a virtual visit with a medical professional through Atlanta Urgent Care's telemedicine services. Registering for a telemedicine or clinic visit does not guarantee testing will be performed. Patients coming to a Atlanta Urgent Care clinic must call upon arrival in the parking lot to check in for a visit.
Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude COVID-19 infection, or to inform infection status.
