DENVER (CBS4) – King Soopers and City Market are launching COVID-19 rapid antibody tests at pharmacy locations in Colorado. The Food and Drug Administration approved the tests which are conducted through a blood sample taken from a prick to your finger.

Customers who believe they might have been infected with the virus and are not experiencing symptoms can take the test.

The test costs $25 and results typically come back in 15 minutes.

Patients will learn if they developed the anti-bodies that fight the virus.

“The Assure COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test should not be used to diagnose an active infection, as the test only detects antibodies developed in response to the virus, not the virus itself,” said a King Soopers spokesperson.
