WesTex Urgent Care is now offering antibody testing for COVID-19 at their locations in Midland and Odessa.
Antibodies are blood proteins built up to defend the body against a specific virus strain.
WesTex doctors explain they usually develop within two weeks after a person has fully recovered from a virus.
If someone tests positive for an antibody, they should be at less risk when they go back to work.
WesTex Urgent Care is accepting walk-ins for the tests.
They are also offering drive-thru tests for COVID-19 by appointment only.
