Where to get a Covid antibody test?

For personal reasons, I'll need to travel to the US in a bit more than a week. I believe that I've already had a mild case of COVID, and would like to get an antibody test to confirm, as that will put my parents' minds at ease about me being in the airports as things are going off the rails (again) there.

I haven't been able to find anywhere that I could either order one, or go get tested.

I've read that they are being provided by some employers (mine is not one), but if anyone knows where one can go to get them, it would be much appreciated.

I did one at the local pharmacy. You could also ask your GP or order a test kit online.

Re: Where to get a Covid antibody test?

There are test kits you can use at home. They send you all the stuff you need to draw blood yourself and then you send it to a lab for analysis. I've used this one and was satisfied:

I had to send the sample to a lab in Kloten and got the results within a day per email.


Another provider I considered is Cerascreen:

Both providers work with several different labs, so turnaround times, specificity and sensitivity can vary a bit, but should be more then fit for your purpose.

Pretty sure Lab Rothen in Basel do them.

Not related to the test but - In case you haven't seen it, the USA has again been added to Switzerland's naughty list. You'll need to quarantine upon return.

Yeah, super unexcited about that, but can't realistically be avoided.
