COVID-19 antibody tests are blood tests designed to detect whether someone has been exposed to the new coronavirus and developed disease antibodies as a result. The serology tests are for patients that do not have symptoms of COVID-19 or are not currently sick with the virus, but who may have been exposed or had symptoms in the past. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has noted that
broad-based testing may provide the information needed to guide the response to the pandemic and protect the public’s health.
“This is our way to help support the fight to overcome COVID-19,” said MedRite Medical Director Michael Platzman. “We are committed to the health and wellbeing of the communities in which we operate, and we are proud to provide our resources to them during this time of crisis.”
MedRite Urgent Care accepts most major insurances.
