Do I Need Coronavirus Testing?
Testing for an active coronavirus (COVID-19) infection may be appropriate if you are displaying potential symptoms of this disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), common coronavirus symptoms include:
- Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
- Fever and chills
- Muscle or body aches
- Sore throat
- Reduced sense of smell or taste
- Nasal congestion
- Sore throat
- Nausea and vomiting
If you have recently recovered from an illness that included any of these symptoms (even if they were mild), or if you had previous contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19, you may want to consider antibody testing. This test checks the blood for specific proteins (antibodies) that the body’s immune system might have produced in response to a coronavirus infection. Testing positive for coronavirus antibodies indicates that you may have had COVID-19 in the past.
