Serological tests for Coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 are intended for ANY individual who may have had COVID-19 symptoms but are no longer symptomatic or think they may have had exposure. The tests determine the presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and can help identify individuals who have been exposed past or present to the virus. Both the Antigen and PCR swab can determine active infections.
Confirmation of infection with SARS-CoV-2 must be made through a combination of clinical evaluation and other applicable tests.
This is not drive through rapid testing, but rather a systematic approach using a commercially available, widely used test with results available within days of collection of the specimen.
