Are you wondering if you have already had the coronavirus? There’s one way to find out. That’s through an anti-body test. The Regional Center for Border Health, Inc. will be conducting anti-body tests from Monday June 22 through Thursday, June 25 at their Walk-In Clinic in Parker.
The first recorded death from the coronavirus was in late February 2020 in the State of Washington. However, health care experts now believe the virus was in this country long before that. They have two deaths that occurred in January in California’s Silicon Valley that they now attribute to the coronavirus.
What an anti-body test does is it shows if the person’s immune system has developed defenses against the coronavirus in the form of anti-bodies. These cells attack and destroy invading cells like viruses and bacteria. If one has the coronavirus anti-bodies, this will show that person has already been infected and recovered.
If you think you may already have had the coronavirus, you can make an appointment with the Regional Center for Border Health, Inc. at 928-256-4110. Testing will be by appointment only. All people being tested must be at least 15 years of age.
The Parker Walk-In Clinic is located at 601 Riverside Drive in the old Betty Hunter Building.
