LabCorp uses Abbott or Roche antibody assays, costs a $10 telehealth referral, and they bill your insurance.

Results in usually two days.

Check your local urgent care/medical providers about antibody testing. Places are starting to gain more widespread ability to perform the antibody testing. My wife and I got our tests done (the Abbott) test two weeks ago at a local urgent care network. Zero cost to us with our insurance. Both of us came back negative.

3 out of 15 recipients of the trial vaccine received serious injury or required immediate medical attention.

Which vaccine? Where does it say that?

The tests still aren't that great. The NYT did a piece about a teenager who got the antibody test and it came back negative. He continued to have complications so they gave him another test and it came back positive.

If you are referring to HCQ it has failed every single double blind study that it has been through. It doesn’t work sorry.

Mine came back negative, and honestly, I don't know what I could have done to be more exposed to the virus, short of taking my lunch breaks in an ICU. It makes zero sense that I (allegedly) haven't been exposed, but some 94 year old lady in one of the state's rural counties gets it and dies. Maybe she liked the slots more than me?

Seriously, this is another reason most people need to relax about their risk and accept that the opportunity for containment is long gone. On the other hand, we absolutely need to figure out why vulnerable populations are getting infected during a lockdown and how to actually protect/treat them. Just don't ask Gov. Cuomo for ideas.
