COVID-19 Testing Options There are two different kinds of tests that can be done for COVID-19. One is a viral test while the other is an antibody test. Viral Tests: This test is done to tell you whether or not you currently have a SARS-CoV-2 infection, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. Getting a positive result means that you have an infection. There are different types of viral tests that are available including a RT-PCR test which can detect the virus’ genetic material along with an antigen test which will detect specific proteins on the surface of the virus. Antibody Tests: An antibody blood test checks your blood for antibodies which will show if you’ve been previously infected with the virus. Why You Should Get Tested COVID-19 is an infectious disease that is a recently discovered type of coronavirus and it should be taken seriously because of how contagious it is. Most people who are infected with COVID-19 will experience mild or moderate respiratory illness and recover on their own without special treatment. However, older people and those with existing medical problems like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, and/or cancer are more likely to develop a serious illness. Some people may not experience any symptoms at all, but still infect others who may have a different reaction. If you fear you are or may be sick with COVID-19, it’s best to get tested to make sure. In the event that your COVID-19 testing results come back positive, you’ll be required to quarantine for 14 days.
