DIFFERENT TESTS AVAILABLE 

  • There are currently two testing options: 

    • Nasal Swab - this test is a nasal swab that uses molecular testing to determine the presence of viral genomic material.  This test is only useful to tell if someone is currently active with an infection.  

    • Antibody Testing - this test is a blood draw that uses serological analysis to measure an individual’s antibody response corresponding to COVID-19.  Antibodies are part of the body’s immune mechanism to fight off infection, and remember a past infection to build immunity to specific antigens (foreign invaders). This test will tell if an individual has recovered from COVID-19.

HOW TO GET YOUR TEST RESULTS

  • If you were tested at another laboratory facility or private health care provider, then be sure to inquire if there is a patient portal or phone line where you can obtain your results. 

  • Regardless of the site at which you were tested, if your test result was positive (detected or presumptive positive), then the Westchester County Department of Health will contact you.
