This test cannot be used by itself to diagnose an acute infection. Testing with a molecular diagnostic method (e.g., SARS-CoV-2 by PCR) should be performed to evaluate for active infection. It is not known at this time if the presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 confers immunity to reinfection.

The individual immune response following SARS-CoV-2 infection (COVID-19) varies considerably and might give different results with assays from different manufacturers. Results of assays from different manufacturers should not be used interchangeably.
