Use antibody testing to determine how your facility is handling the spread of covid-19

Updated: Jun 26

“The antibody testing really gives you a picture of the history of the infection in any individual, and across the course of a longer period of time, you can actually determine how an individual’s immunity is modulating with respect to COVID,” Christian said. “Within a facility, the ability to test serum antibodies for all of your patients gives you a really good indication of how your facility as a whole is handling the spread of the disease. That’s really important for nursing homes, because they have their procedures for isolating patients who’ve been exposed for certain periods of time, their processes for allocating staff to take care of those patients.”

Dr. Philip Christian, chief medical officer at the clinical laboratory American Health Associates, explained to SNN.
