One fingerstick will be done to evaluate for the presense of antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19. An antibody test does not show if you have a current infection because it can take a couple weeks after an infection to make antibiodies. It also will not tell you the LEVEL of antibodies present.
If you have a positive result it is possible that you have or previously had COVID-19 and that you. have developed an antibody response. The cost of antibody test is $20.
