Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Antibody Testing

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 2 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.

To make a virtual appointment with a medical provider from home, call your nearest location. The number for our Druid Hills Office is (678) 805-7981 and our Peachtree Office is (678) 805-7425.

Antibody testing is used to determine if you:

  • Previously had a Covid-19/coronavirus infection
  • May have been previously exposed to Covid-19/coronavirus
  • Were possibly an asymptomatic carrier of Covid-19/coronavirus

Who may benefit from antibody testing?

  • A person who would like to know if they have antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19
  • A person who has recovered from a COVID-19-like illness in the past who would like to know if the illness was possibly from SARS-CoV-2
  • A person who has a close contact that finds out they had COVID-19 in the past.
  • A person participating in research scientists are doing to better understand SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and their role in immunity to COVID-19
  • A person participating with a medical facility collecting convalescent plasma with antibodies from people who have recovered from COVID-19 infection.

What do my antibody tests results mean for me?

Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude COVID-19 infection, or to inform infection status.

Positive antibody results:

This test has not been FDA cleared or approved. This test has been authorized by FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. 360bbb-3(b) (1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner. This test has been authorized only for detecting the presence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens. —LabCorp

  • A positive antibody test result indicates you likely had a COVID-19 infection.
  • A positive test may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.
  • There is also a possibility of a false positive if it’s unlikely you had COVID-19 based on your exposure history or symptoms

Negative antibody results:

  • A negative antibody test result indicates you likely never had (or have not yet developed antibodies to) a COVID-19 infection.
  • Negative test results do not rule out COVID-19 infection, particularly if you have been in contact with the virus.
  • Viral testing should be considered to rule out infection in negative individuals who have been in contact with the virus. Ask your healthcare provider about this test.
