Antibody Infographic

This antibody infographic explains what antibody tests can and cannot do. NJDOH wants people to know that a positive antibody test is NOT a pass to skip wearing a mask and ignore physical distancing. People with positive results may still get COVID19 and infect others. Testing is encouraged because the data collected from testing is crucial to ongoing research.  Click to view.
