Antibody tests, scientifically called serologic tests, have grown in popularity since testing has ramped up. However, a CDC report says antibody test results are not accurate enough to influence policy.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC says.
