The Fishers Health Department currently does not administer antibody tests for COVID-19 virus (SARS-COV-2), also known as serological tests. These tests detect antibodies to the COVID-19 virus in an individual’s blood. Antibody testing cannot be used to diagnose or rule out a COVID-19 infection. A positive COVID-19 antibody test means there are antibodies to COVID-19 in an individual’s blood and indicates exposure to the virus even in asymptomatic people. Currently, we are uncertain if a positive antibody test provides protection against COVID-19 or prevents reinfection. At this time, the value of antibody testing is limited and we do not fully understand how the tests can be used to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections. Everyone, regardless of their antibody status, should follow the recommended CDC guidelines such as covering the nose and mouth with a mask when in public or around symptomatic people, social distancing, and frequent handwashing to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our communities.
The City of Fishers’ goal is to manage precautions and encourage the community to take personal responsibility and reduce the impact to populations who are at a higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness. The CDC has identified older populations are at a higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness.
The City’s number one priority is the continued transparency and safety of our residents and our employees. The City of Fishers has compiled a list of frequently asked questions for residents, businesses, and stakeholders.
