COVID-19 testing is critical to measure the spread of this disease within our community and assist our regional response efforts.
Types of Testing
COVID-19 tests can detect either SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) or antibodies that your body makes after getting COVID-19 or after getting vaccinated.
Viral Tests: Tests for SARS-CoV-2 tell you if you have an infection at the time of the test.
Antibody Tests: Tests for antibodies may tell you if you have had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. Your body creates antibodies after getting infected with SARS-CoV-2 or after getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
