About

Learn About the Test

Antibody testing for COVID-19 IgG, also known as serology testing, checks for an antibody form called immunoglobulin G (IgG).

Your body normally produces IgG antibodies as part of the immune response if you have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.

Developing antibodies may take at least two weeks after exposure.

This form of COVID-19 test is for people who feel that they may have had COVID-19 and do not have symptoms at present.

You can get the IgG test through your doctor or healthcare provider.

Test Results

If I get tested, what are the results going to tell me?

Your test results can help to identify whether you have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 and, if so, whether or not your body has formed antibodies. While antibodies typically provide immunity from further infection, there is insufficient evidence at this time to indicate that people who have antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, are protected from possible virus infections. The findings of this test will also not include guidance about whether you can spread the virus to others and will not be used as a basis for diagnosis.

Various factors may have an effect on the outcome of the antibody test, including the time the test was taken after the symptoms of COVID-19 are experienced, the absence or period after exposure to the virus, or the lack of a sufficient immune response that may be due to conditions or treatments that impair immune function.
