The SARS-CoV-2 serology antibody test provided has a specificity of 100% and a sensitivity of 96%. The COVID-19 antibody test being used is authorized for emergency use by the FDA and one of the most reliable antibody tests currently available.
The community event is for asymptomatic individuals who suspect they may have come in contact with the coronavirus or have recently experienced symptoms but were never tested. It is recommended that individuals who believe they may be showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 take a swab test.
This no cost COVID-19 antibody test can be used to detect the presence of an IgG antibody response, which can identify past COVID-19 infections and whether a person has developed an immune response or immunity to the coronavirus. The COVID-19 antibody test is a serum blood test that detects the body’s immune response to the infection caused by the COVID-19 virus. A positive result indicates that an individual has been infected with the COVID-19 pathogen in the past.
All antibody tests and results are completely confidential. Results will be available within five business days following all HIPAA compliance requirements.
People of all ages are welcome to come to the event for antibody testing. Individuals between one to 17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to receive a COVID-19 serology antibody blood test.
“GUARDaHEART is proud to partner with Coast Hills Church to provide this testing opportunity for the community and surrounding areas during such a difficult period. Financial concerns should not be a barrier to testing, and we want to serve as much of the community as possible in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 and have a safe reopening,” said Estrella Harrington, Founder of GUARDaHEART.
The testing is covered under the CARES Act with or without insurance. Those who have insurance should bring their insurance cards. Those who are insured will have no out-of-pocket costs, such as co-pays or deductibles, since insurance companies are required to handle these fees.
