The recently established antibody testing site at Evans High School had a prominent visitor on Thursday: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.
The site is part of Augusta University Health’s continuing testing initiatives for COVID-19. If antibodies are found in a person, it means they once had the virus and have since recovered — information that could be used to help others newly infected.
Kemp took a tour of the site and said he was impressed with what he saw. He also praised AU Health for leading the charge in fighting COVID-19 across the state.
“Augusta University has been a big part of that,” Gov. Kemp told WRDW-TV. “They are a big part of our state in a lot of other ways that we are very proud of.”
In order to qualify for an antibody test, those interested must speak to their physician or schedule a telemedicine appointment.
