Your body produces antibodies to fight infectious diseases such as COVID-19. These antibodies will remain in your bloodstream for some time if you have previously had or been exposed to the corona virus. Research on COVID-19 antibody behavior is still under development, but most medical professionals believe these antibodies may remain in your bloodstream for up 4-6 weeks after exposure.
The COVID-19 antibody test uses a droplet of blood to detect the presence of antibodies associated with the COVID-19 virus. The test takes about 10 minutes to run. Although antibodies do not give a person full immunity from the virus, the detection of antibodies can provide a useful clue into the spread of the disease and a reasonable explanation for past symptoms.
