Testing for COVID-19 at New Jersey Sports Medicine

The COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test and COVID-19 Antibody Test (blood
test) are both available at New Jersey Sports Medicine.  Test samples will
be sent out to Labcorp or Quest Diagnostics.  Results may be available in
1 to 3 days.

The COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test uses PCR Technology to detect the
presence of viral RNA in a sample.  For more information on PCR
positives and what they mean please visit
The Centre for Evidence-Based
Medicine.

The COVID-19 Antibody Test is not a diagnostic test for patients who are
exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19. It may be used in
instances when an individual thinks they might have had COVID-19 in the
past.

A positive COVID-19 antibody result indicates that an individual has likely
produced an immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus. A
negative serologic COVID-19 antibody result indicates that an individual
has not developed detectable antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) at
the time of testing.  Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2
infection.   Positive antibody results may be due to past or present
infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus
HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.
