NEWS & INFORMATION

5/20/2020

At the present time, ConnextCare providers will not be ordering this type of testing. ConnextCare will continue to review new information regarding the use of antibody testing for further consideration. 

According to the American Medical Association President Patrice A. Harris, MD, MA. regarding antibody testing for COVID 19; "given that we do not yet have scientific evidence showing if, when and for how long individuals might become immune to COVID-19, physicians and the general public should not use antibody testing to consider anyone immune to the disease—doing so may lead individuals to falsely assume they can stop physical distancing and further the spread of illness."  Select this link  for the full article shared by the American Medical Association.
