Types of COVID-19 Tests

There are two different types of tests – diagnostic tests and antibody tests.

An antibody test looks for a past infection and should not be used to diagnose an active infection.

A diagnostic test, such as a PCR or rapid antigen test, can show if you have an active infection.
