COVID-19 Antibody Blood Tests Will Be Available At MainStreet Family Care

The antibody test can tell you if you have already had COVID-19.

Antibodies for the COVID-19 develop 1-2 weeks after becoming infected. However, it is possible to be actively infected and contagious for a week or more after developing the antibodies. A positive antibody test paired with a negative virus infection test will help conclude if a patient has already had the virus and is no longer actively contagious. 

The COVID-19 antibody test is performed by drawing a blood sample from the patient and sending it to the lab to be processed. Any patient interested in being tested for COVID-19 can walk into a MainStreet or KidsStreet clinic at any time to be tested.

Insurance will cover the cost of testing, and co-pays are being waived right now.

Patients can still get the tests if they do not have insurance, but they will have to pay for it out of pocket.
