CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK)—West Virginia State Health Officer and DHHR Public Health Commissioner Dr. Ayne Amjad said that residents should contact their healthcare providers if they want to test for COVID-19 antibodies.

One of the questions during Wednesday’s “Vaccinate West Virginia” town hall came from a woman who believed that she might have already caught and recovered from COVID-19. She asked the panel how she could find out if she had indeed already recovered from the virus.

Dr. Amjad explained that people can figure out if they have COVID-19 antibodies in their system with a simple blood test and subsequent lab work, which can easily be ordered by their healthcare providers.
