“It also indicates that a likely infection is occurring,” she said. “The other test, the seralogic test also will detect the presence of antibodies from previous exposure to the virus. However, it is not useful to determine current infection.” Baker said the testing criteria for the State Public Health Lab has been updated. “The state public health lab criteria has opened up for additional testing,” Baker said. “If individuals still do not meet the criteria for the public health lab you do have other options, commercial laboratories, university laboratories and private laboratories, but no matter your testing source, you must have a referral from your healthcare provider.” Those approved to be tested include symptomatic close contacts to a suspected COVID-19 patient with pending laboratory testing or laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, symptomatic health care workers, law enforcement officers, fire department staff and other first responders, symptomatic residents of congregate living facilities who are at higher risk for poor outcomes, hospital patients who have COVID-19 compatible signs and symptoms, and symptomatic patients who are at high risk for negative health outcomes from COVID-19.
