For questions about testing and a host of other COVID related topics please fill out and submit our Coronavirus/COVID-19 Inquiry Form.

Types of COVID-19 Testing

Diagnostic Testing

Currently, there are two types of diagnostic tests which detect the virus – molecular tests, such as RT-PCR tests, that detect the virus’s genetic material, and antigen tests that detect specific proteins on the surface of the virus. To decide which test is right for you, read more about the different kinds of tests from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Antibody Testing

Some sites are now offering COVID-19 antibody testing for those who have had a postitive test result or think they may have had COVID-19 and recovered.

PLEASE NOTE: Antibodies can take several days or weeks to develop after you have an infection and may stay in your blood for several weeks or more after recovery. Because of this, antibody tests should not be used to diagnose an active coronavirus infection. At this time researchers do not know if the presence of antibodies means that you are immune to the coronavirus in the future. Read more from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing Sites
