“Antibody testing could help determine whether someone has been infected with COVID-19 in the past. But there are still a lot of unknowns about what else we might learn from the tests.”

Testing

State epidemiologist Dr. Benjamin Chan said the state is testing an average of 1,700 people per day for COVID-19, and the three-day average of positive tests has continued to be around 5%. Commissioner Lori Shibinette said testing capacity has expanded in the North Country, where ClearChoiceMD has set up a testing site at Littleton Regional Hospital. The site can perform tests for active cases and for COVID-19 antibodies.
