The antibody test is for people who think they might have had covid-19 and recovered from it, or who think they might have had a case without symptoms. The antibody test will give you peace of mind if you are wondering whether you have had covid-19.
The antibody test screens your blood for the presence of covid-19 coronavirus antibodies.
A positive result means that you have had a covid-19 infection in the past.
Please note that the global scientific community does not yet know if you can catch covid-19 more than once. The presence of antibodies does not mean you are protected from covid-19.
If you currently have coronavirus symptoms our Covid-19 PCR test may give you a more useful result.

What should I do if my covid-19 antibody test is positive?
If your covid-19 antibody test is positive and you have no symptoms you should continue to take the usual steps to avoid infection, as we do not know whether covid-19 infection confers immunity.
If your covid-19 antibody test is positive and you have symptoms you should follow the current government advice at the NHS covid-19 website.
What should I do if my covid-19 antibody test is negative?
A negative covid-19 antibody test means that you do not have antibodies for covid-19. But it does not mean you are not currently infected with covid-19.
If you have been exposed to covid-19 or if you have covid-19 symptoms follow the current government advice on the NHS covid-19 website.
