Should I get a COVID-19 antibody test?
Ask the doctor
Q. Should I get a test for COVID-19 antibodies, even though I've never had any symptoms and I don't think I've had the virus?
A. A blood test for COVID-19 antibodies tells you if you have been infected in the past; it does not accurately tell you if you are currently infected. You can get an antibody test through your doctor, or possibly through a testing center set up by your state or city.
