SDSM does not recommend COVID Antibody testing at this time. Currently the test results are inaccurate and unable to be adequately interpreted, and therefore do not change the management of the individual patient. We do expect with further work that the tests will become a valuable tool in the overall management of this crisis.

Flattening the curve---are we there yet?
Encouraging data from the San Diego Department of Health has shown that fewer new cases of COVID-19 have been identified the past few days. Officials are encouraged by this data, but say it is too soon to know if this trend will hold for the long-term, and when we can expect to return to a semblance of our former lives.
"It is paramount that we receive test results for first responders as soon as possible. The results not only guide our decisions for individual treatment, but determine city staffing algorithms to ensure there are enough first responders on duty to protect our community.
