COVID-19 BLOOD ANTIBODY TEST RESULTS 

(as of May 4, 2020) 

  • 5,455 blood antibody tests have been processed
    • 29 positive
    • 79 borderline
    • 5,347 negative
  • A positive result on the first blood test means that an individual has been exposed to COVID-19 (and may or may not have ever experienced symptoms).
  • A borderline result on the first test indicates that the result produced a “high-signal flash” which is not enough to produce a positive result. It means that the individual may have been recently exposed to COVID-19 and may be in the early stage of producing antibodies.
  • A negative result on the first blood test means that an individual either has not been exposed to COVID-19 –OR— the person is in the window of having recently been exposed and has not yet developed antibodies that would make the test result be positive.
