Do you think you had COVID-19? Antibody tests are available


DETROIT – You had a mystery virus in January or February which corresponds to most of the symptoms of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and you are now curious to know it.

Antibody tests are readily available to see if you have had the disease.

For example, all Beaumont Urgent Care offers the test and you don’t need a prescription. This is a blood test, not a cotton swab like the COVID-19 virus test. Results usually come back in two days.

If you test positive for antibodies, it’s not an immediate ticket, however. At present, it is unclear whether having these antibodies makes you immune to the virus.

Antibody testing is available in all Beaumont Urgent Care and virus testing is available in some Urgent Care.
