Antibody Surveys Begin in County

Health experts will be visiting randomly selected homes in Fulton and DeKalb counties, starting Tuesday, April 28, and continuing through May 4, to conduct antibody surveys in the fight against COVID-19.

Participation is voluntary. Residents will be asked some questions and a blood sample will be requested for antibody testing. The tests cannot detect active cases, but they can help with an understanding of how many people already have been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Those who suspect that they may have the virus should still visit a testing site.

The antibody survey is a collaboration among the county health boards, the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Survey workers will have an official CDC vest and badge, along with a letter verifying the purpose of their visit.
