I'm keen to know if my family has any immunity
How can I find out if we might have previously had Coronavirus and are there any suitable private tests available?
One of the most common fears we come across is that someone who has previously had Covid-19 symptoms, might pass it on to their family. This is especially true for households where some family members are shielding, and others are not, or if you or your partner works in an essential service.
If you are thinking about visiting family in another household or just concerned about the family in yours, we recommend that you get the family tested.
Well all of my family seem fit and healthy do I still need to test them?
It is important to remember that as many as 80% of people who contract the virus can be asymptomatic. From our perspective, if you have any family members who are vulnerable, it’s always worth getting the whole household tested.
What tests should I use?
We strongly recommend the use of antibody tests. Whilst it is important to remember that the presence of antibodies is not yet a guarantee of future immunity, an antibody test can give you an indication of whether you have had the virus and may have resistance to Covid-19 in the future.

What can I expect from my local GP or the NHS?
Unfortunately, GP’s and the wider NHS do not currently distribute any antibody tests to the public, although they are being used in clinical trials. These instant antibody blood spot tests are only available to purchase.
