Rapid COVID-19 Testing Q & A

What is rapid COVID-19 antibody testing?

Rapid COVID-19 antibody testing is a test that checks for antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 — severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

Your immune system makes antibodies after an infection or vaccination. These antibodies protect you from getting sick (or developing severe symptoms) the next time you come in contact with the germ.

The team at Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC offers rapid COVID-19 antibody testing to determine if you had a COVID-19 infection. This test only determines a history of the infection and not if you currently have COVID-19.

Who needs rapid COVID-19 antibody testing?

The Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC team determines if you need rapid COVID-19 antibody testing after an interview. They may suggest you get this test if you suspect you had COVID-19, but never got tested when you were sick. You may also need antibody testing if you think you had COVID-19 but were asymptomatic so you didn’t get tested.

It takes several days or weeks for your body to build up enough detectable antibodies for the test. You should wait at least two weeks after exposure before getting checked for antibodies. Your provider can help you determine the best time to get checked.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you need a different test, the COVID-19 antigen test, to check for an active infection. Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC offers this type of testing too. 

In addition, the practice also offers antigen test, RT-PCR for RSV, FLU, COVID.

What happens during rapid COVID-19 antibody testing?

The rapid COVID-19 antibody test is a blood test. Before the test, the team sends you check-in information and instructions for the test.

At your visit, a staff member draws your blood and sends it to the lab for testing. If your antibody test is positive, the team calls you. Negative results are made available on the patient portal.

What do my results mean from rapid COVID-19 antibody testing?

Rapid COVID-19 antibody testing isn’t meant to determine if you have a current infection. The team at Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC performs this test to help determine if you had the infection in the past.

Testing positive for COVID-19 antibodies doesn’t mean you’re immune to the virus.

Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC provides rapid COVID-19 testing seven days a week. Call the office nearest you or schedule your test online today.
