Coronavirus Testing Information
- Viral test lets you know if you have a current infection.
- Antibody test lets you know if you’ve had a previous infection.
An antibody test may not show if you have a current infection, because it can take 1-3 weeks after infection to make antibodies. We do not know yet if having antibodies to the virus can make one immune to the virus. We also don’t how long that protection might last if they are immune.
