    If you're looking for testing because you are having symptoms or have been exposed:

    Should I get re-tested?

    Getting retested with a molecular test like a RT-PCR after recovering from COVID-19 is not necessary or recommended. It is possible for someone to test positive for up to 3 months after recovering from COVID-19, even though they are not spreading the virus. Once someone who has COVID-19 is 5 days from the first day they have symptoms, their symptoms have improved, and they have been fever-free for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicines (such as Ibuprofen), they may discontinue isolation as long as they wear a well fitting mask for 5 additional days. There is still a risk of transmission on days 6-10 after the start of their symptoms.  An employer should not require an employee to test negative if the employee is past the release date indicated on their isolation order.


    Antibody Testing

    Talk with your health care provider if you’re interested in an antibody test. There are few FDA-authorized antibody tests so few of these tests have had the evaluation and testing to prove that they can provide trustworthy results. Some tests may only detect if you’ve been exposed to the virus, but can't determine if you are immune. Read more about antibody testing for COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention here.


    Interested in donating COVID-19 convalescent plasma?

    What is convalescent plasma?

    The management of COVID-19 has mainly focused on infection prevention, case detection and monitoring, and supportive care. There is no specific anti-SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) treatment recommended at this time because of the absence of evidence, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

    However, people who recover (convalesce) from COVID-19 make antibodies against the virus in the plasma component of their blood. And evidence shows that this convalescent plasma can be used as a treatment for patients with COVID-19 without the occurrence of severe adverse events.

    UCHealth has already treated patients using this blood and is looking to identify potential donors of convalescent COVID-19 plasma to be able to treat more COVID-positive patients across the state.

    Do I qualify?

    COVID-19 convalescent plasma may only be collected from COVID-19 recovered individuals if they are eligible to donate blood.

    You must have:

    What if I had symptoms of COVID-19, but never got a test?

    If you suffered from a respiratory illness over the last eight weeks and believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, you may be eligible to donate plasma in the near future. Please fill out the forms below. Then, if the opportunity arises for you to donate plasma, coordinators will follow up with you soon. 

    How can I learn more about convalescent plasma donation?

    In Northern Colorado: To learn more or to schedule a convalescent plasma donation, contact Kaitlin Zobel: 970.495.8987, or fill out this form and someone will contact you. Details on their process and scheduling can be found here.
