What’s the Difference Between a Coronavirus Test and an Antibody Test?
A coronavirus test, sometimes called a diagnostic test, looks for signs of active virus. It’s simpler and faster than an antibody test. But it tells you only if you have the virus in your body at the moment when you’re tested.
An antibody test shows that you had the virus at some point in the past. It could be gone, or you could still be contagious.
Do your part to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community by getting tested for COVID-19. You could have COVID-19 and not even know it.
It's quick and easy. You don't need insurance and free testing is available. Anyone who wants a test, can now get one.
It's especially important to get tested if:
- You are experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, sore throat, muscle pain, shivering, headache, or new loss of taste or smell)
- You have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19
- You are an essential worker (health care worker, first responder, food service worker, or transit worker)
- You have recently attended a large gathering like a demonstration, protest, or anywhere where social distancing is hard to maintain.
