One thing to be careful of is that many of the antibody tests currently out there are not reliable and deliver an unacceptable number of false positives (indicating that you have already been exposed to coVid19 when you have not). The link below takes you to NY Times article that said that eleven out of fourteen antibody tests have turned out to be unreliable. (I don't know if this article will be behind a firewall or not.)I asked my doctor at UC Davis for an antibody test. She said it is not yet available for the general public. However, a client of mine in the Bay Area with some Covid symptoms who tested negative said his doctor sent him to the lab for an antibody test. Is it available to the public yet? If so, how does one go about getting it if the doctor says it is not available?
