That's assuming I don't get tested again in the future, though I'd like to get an antibody test first.

Hopefully you have no reason to get tested again.

Mt Sinai stopped doing another test before allowing plasma donations. Anyone who they did give it to will need to get a negative test before donating. (They're also using them as test rats to find out how long the virus is in the back of the nose)
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Guidance from the CDC changed.

If someone tests positive for antibodies will they count them in the total infection counts? What about in the new infection counts?

literally hundreds of people got tested for antibodies in Lakewood today. I wish I can get a test even thogh I did not have real symptoms but was definitely exposed to people who did - might be my lucky day.

You can check, just keep in mind what Bikur Cholim said about checking: It is immoral to check for antibodies if you do not plan on donating blood if you have them, as many other people who check would be glad to donate and you would be taking their place.

Thatís not to suggest you wouldnít, Iím merely pointing this out.

That is why I would not check there as it would be גניבת דעת if not worse - also I live in the midwest. I just wish the test was more available it would sure be helpfull to know if one is past it.
