What will my test results tell me?

An antibody test will show whether or not you have developed antibodies to COVID-19.

COVID-19 Molecular Test (Swab) $100.00

This test checks for genetic material (viral RNA) produced by the virus. This determines if an individual is actively infected with COVID-19 and can spread it to others


COVID-19 Antibody Test (Blood) $50.00

This test checks for antibodies to COVID-19. If you've been exposed to COVID-19, your body produces antibodies as part of the immune response to the virus. This test cannot tell you if you have an active infection.

*Disclaimer: If you feel that you are having a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1.
If you are experiencing severe trouble breathing, continuous pain or pressure in your
chest, feeling confused or having difficulty waking up, blue-colored lips or face, or any

What is COVID-19?

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that was first detected in December 2019. COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The virus, which can cause mild to severe respiratory illness, was first identified in Wuhan, China, and has now spread globally, including in the United States. Those who have this disease may or may not experience symptoms, which range from mild to severe. COVID-19 spreads easily from person-to-person, even when an infected person is not showing symptoms. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, droplets containing the virus go into the air. These droplets can be inhaled or land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, exposing them to the virus.

People may also be exposed to COVID-19 by touching their eyes, nose, or mouth after touching a surface with the virus on it. Although this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, researchers are still learning more about COVID-19.

PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF COVID-19

Social Distancing, Isolation and quarantine are ways to limit your interaction with others to prevent the spread of disease.

What is social distancing?

Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. It includes:

  • Staying at least 6 feet (2 meters) from other people.
  • Not gathering in groups.
  • Staying out of crowded places and avoiding mass gatherings.
What is self-quarantine?

Self-quarantine is separating individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but haven’t been tested. They are separated for a brief period of time (14 days after possible exposure) to see if they develop symptoms.

  • If you have not been tested but may have been exposed to COVID-19, self-monitoring and self-quarantine is recommended to see if you get sick.

What is self-isolate?

Self-isolation is separating individuals with COVID-19 from people who are not sick. Individuals are separated for a period of time until they are no longer infectious.

  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19, self-isolation is recommended so that you do not pass the virus to others.


If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, it is very important to stay home and limit your interaction with others in your household and in public.
