Testing for COVID-19 - Antibody Testing

Antibody-based tests for the detection of antibodies against coronaviruses are now available through commercial laboratories. Only a select few of these tests are specific for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Providers should review the COVID-19 Antibody Testing Primer from the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) about serology-based tests for COVID-19.
