What is an antibody test and what information does the test reveal?
Antibody tests are blood tests that look for antibodies, which show if you have been previously infected with COVID-19. The test will either show no antibodies, which means no exposure to the virus; developing antibodies, which means you have been exposed to the virus; or protective antibodies, which means you have been exposed and recovering from the virus.
