Baton Rouge General is going to begin offering COVID-19 antibody testing at two BRG Express Care locations today.

Health officials say they will be conducting the testing to determine if a patient has developed antibodies against the novel coronavirus after being infected, even if they only experienced mild to no symptoms.

According to reports, medical professionals will draw a small amount of blood then send the sample to the Mayo Clinic Laboratory to analyze for the presence of antibodies.

Patients will then receive a call from a BRG provider within 48 hours with results.

It's important to note that at this time, insurance does not cover the cost of COVID-19 antibody testing, which is $100.

BRG will offer antibody testing at the Express Care locations in Highland Village and Dutchtown.
