There are several ways to test for Coronavirus. Quality Care ER is now offering both PCR and Antibody testing.
These tests detect antibodies that are produced by your body to help fight infections and usually remain in the blood for some time. They will often help you fight that infection again in case you are re-exposed. These antibodies in time should be present in anyone who has had Coronavirus in the past. You could have recovered from COVID-19 already, or you may have been exposed to Coronavirus and had no symptoms.

PCR tests look for evidence of actual Coronavirus in your body now. You could have symptoms or not. It is with a nasal/pharyngeal cotton swab. They then send it to a lab for testing and results come back in 24-48 hours.
PCR tests can help diagnose active COVID-19. They generally can not tell if someone has had the Coronavirus and since recovered.
