For $119, you can now purchase a Quest Diagnostics coronavirus antibody test online to find out if you've been exposed to the virus, although the test requires individuals to have blood drawn at a Quest patient service center.
IS THE CORONAVIRUS ANTIBODY TEST KEY TO REOPENING THE ECONOMY?
"While the science on COVID-19 is evolving, testing for antibodies may identify people who have likely been exposed to COVID-19 and might have mounted an immune response to the virus," Quest's chief medical officer Dr. Jay Wohlgemuth said in a statement. "Our goal is to empower individuals and their physicians to make informed decisions about their risk of infection and of spreading the virus."
Individuals who buy the test online can schedule a blood draw at one of Quest's 2,200 patient centers. They're required to be coronavirus symptom-free for at least 10 days and wear a face mask.
Test results are available one to two days after the blood draw and come with a simple online report.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already started coronavirus antibody testing, which determines whether someone has had the virus in the past, to piece together a picture of how many Americans may have already been infected.
