COVID-19 Antibodies Testing

By: Vanessa Mitchell Tuesday, 19 May 2020

Attention Healthcare Professionals, First Responders, and those on the Front Lines!

Choice Screening and LabCorp have teamed up to provide COVID1-9 Antibodies Testing. The SARS-CoV-2 Antibody IgG Assay Summary offered through LabCorp collection sites. The test detects the presence of IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. 



The Antibodies Test received EUA (Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. Results should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude recent infection of COVID-19. False positive results may occur.  This test is recommended 10-14 days post symptoms or 10-14 days following exposure to COVID-19.

Prior to initiating testing on your employees, it is best practice to put a policy in place and consult with a qualified employment attorney. Things to consider:

  • How will you address the results of the test?
  • If results are positive, should the employee be tested for current infection prior to being allowed to return to work?
  • Adverse action should not be taken based on the results of the test.

Please consult with your healthcare provider in the event you think you may have COVID-19.
