As of Tuesday, this is the results of the SARS-CoV-2 antibody test both departments have received:

n Genesee County: Of the 1,674 antibody test results received there were 52 who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) antibodies, a rate of 3.1 percent.

n Orleans County: Of the 721 antibody test results received there were 17 who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, a rate of 2.4 percent.

The antibody test is a blood test that looks for antibodies that are created in your body after you have had COVID-19.

The antibody positives represent those individuals who have had an antibody test and were shown to have exposure to the virus, but did not end up getting symptoms of the virus. A positive antibody test is not considered a positive COVID-19 test, and may instead be indicative of immunity to the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
