For assessment of symptoms and next-step direction, set up a visit with a medical professional by calling 843-681-3777 or logging on to our website to requet an appointment. An office visit does not guarantee a rapid testing will be performed. Patients coming to a Main Street Medical must call upon arrival in the parking lot to check in for a visit.
What do my viral tests results mean for me?
If you are told you have a positive viral test, most likely you currently have an active COVID-19 infection and you can give the virus to others. Follow instructions from your provider about isolation and when you can leave home.
If you are told you have a negative viral test, most likely you do NOT currently have an active COVID-19 infection. However, there is a small possibility the result is a false negative. Continue taking steps to protect yourself and prevent spread of the virus.
What do my antibody tests results mean for me?
Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude COVID-19 infection, or to inform infection status.
Positive antibody results
Negative antibody results
What is an antibody test?
Antibody tests look for specific proteins, called antibodies, your body made in response to an infection. Antibodies can be found in the blood of people who are tested after infection, and indicate an immune response to the infection. However, we do not know if the antibodies that result from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 infection, will provide immunity from a future infection or the duration that protection would last. Scientists around the world are conducting studies to better understand the level of antibodies needed for protection, the duration of that protection, and the factors associated with whether a person develops a protective antibody response.
Who may benefit from antibody testing?
Do I need to be concerned about exposure if I have antibodies?
Due to the lack of evidence to support protective immunity, if you are exposed, monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and follow-up with your healthcare provider. Be sure to continue to follow federal, state, and local government guidance regarding social distancing and isolation. If you are a healthcare professional, first responder, or other frontline worker, talk to your employer for specific occupational health guidance. Continue to use masks and other personal protective equipment as appropriate.
