What Is Serology?
FDA currently recommends that serology tests can be used to help identify people who may have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 or have recovered from COVID-19
FDA explicitly states that “experience with other viruses suggests that individuals whose blood contains antibodies associated with SARS -CoV-2 infection — provided they are recovered and not currently infected with the virus — may be able to resume work and other daily activities in society”
Serology tests cannot be used to diagnose COVID-19
There are currently no concrete evidence or guidelines that outline a return to work strategy based on serology alone, and reinfection may occur despite positive antibodies
What Benefits Come With COVID-19 Antibody Testing?

These IgG antibody tests determine if someone was exposed to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, by detecting whether they have produced antibodies. It does not determine if someone is actively infected. While there is not yet confirmation that antibodies provide protection against future infection, experience with other viruses indicates that antibodies usually give immunity from further infection.

Are There Any Limitations to a COVID-19 Antibody Tests?

If you get a coronavirus antibody test too soon after being infected, it may cause a false negative result. Furthermore, some individuals who do get infected with COVID-19 may not develop enough antibodies to be detected by this test, such as people with a weakened immune system due to a medical condition or certain medications. Additionally, this test may detect antibodies from a prior exposure to a coronavirus other than COVID-19, which can result in a false positive.

What Are COVID-19 Antibody Tests From Health Street For?

SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing is not for everyone. You should only get this test if you are not feeling sick or DO NOT have the symptoms associated with COVID-19.

An IgG antibody test from Health Street is right for you if…

You’ve had a physician diagnose you with, or you suspect you were infected with COVID-19, but are not experiencing any symptoms now.
You want to know if the illness you experienced was, in fact, COVID-19.
You haven’t had a fever for more than 24 hours.
You have been free of symptoms caused by COVID-19 for 10 days. View a list of COVID-19 symptoms.

You should NOT get this test if…

You are feeling sick or have had a fever in the last 24 hours.
You think you’re currently infected with COVID-19 or have symptoms consistent with COVID-19
You were in contact with someone infected within the last 2 weeks
You have a condition that compromises your immune system
How Is a Coronavirus Antibody Test Performed?

This test is conducted by collecting a blood sample (such as from a finger prick or needle draw).

How Do I Prepare for the Test?

You do not need to do anything to prepare for the test. You do not need to fast or stop taking any medications before testing. Further instructions will be provided to you at the lab or in your test kit.

What Do the Results Tell Me?

This antibody test will show whether or not you have developed antibodies to COVID-19.

Positive Result

A positive COVID-19 antibody test means that IgG antibodies were found in your blood specimen. This indicates that you have been exposed to COVID-19. Generally, this means that your immune system has responded by producing IgG antibodies to protect you against reinfection, but a lot is still unknown about COVID-19. Experts are still finding out the facts about Coronavirus antibody testing and the virus in general.

If your result is positive, you should follow up with your doctor and consult with your employer. A positive result should not be the sole factor determining whether or not you should return to work. You should still maintain social distancing, wear a mask outside of the home, and monitor yourself for symptoms.

Negative Result

A negative COVID-19 antibody test means that IgG antibodies were not found in the sample you provided. This does not mean you’re not at risk or have not contracted COVID-19.

If you were recently exposed to someone with COVID-19, or previously had symptoms of COVID-19, there is a possibility that you tested too soon for your body to have produced enough​ antibodies to be detected by the test. If so, you might consider taking another test in a week or two.

Equivocal or Indeterminate Result

Tests can also come back equivocal, which means the test couldn’t determine if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or not. If you get an indeterminate COVID-19 antibody test result, you will need to get retested to determine whether you have IgG antibodies or not.

About Our COVID-19 IgG Antibody Test

The COVID-19 IgG antibody testing, also known as serology testing, checks for immunoglobulin G (IgG). This is a protein that the body produces in the later stages of COVID-19 infection. It normally takes between 2 and 3 weeks after the body is exposed to COVID-19 for the immune response (IgG antibodies) to develop.

Other forms of COVID-19 antibody testing detect different antibodies the body produces. The IgG antibodies provide the best clues to long term immunity because they are longer-lasting and more specific than other types.

While the test result should not be used as the only indication if a person has been exposed to COVID-19 (a health care provider’s evaluation and exposure history are also important factors), it will enable doctors, employers and individuals to make more informed decisions going forward.

FDA Authorizes COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Testing for COVID-19 antibodies is still being evaluated. In March 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized COVID-19 IgG antibody testing under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This means that while the FDA believes in the efficacy of the test enough to allow it to be administered, it hasn’t been subjected to the rigorous process that warrants FDA approval yet.

FDA Disclaimers
This test has not been approved by the FDA.
Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow-up testing with a molecular diagnostic should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.
Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection or to inform infection status.
Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.

Why Choose Health Street

Health Street’s pledge to you:

There are many testing companies and labs that are offering COVID-19 antibody testing under the EUA.
