Reece Wallaker with M Health Fairview, administered a COVID-19 test to fellow Fairview employee Nichole Brown earlier this year. Fairview is the first in the Twin Cities to offer a retail COVID-19 antibody test without the need for a doctor visit or referral.

A retail COVID-19 antibody test is now available through M Health Fairview that promotes 99% accuracy and offers an answer to all who believe they have already been infected with the coronavirus that causes the disease.

While leaders of the Minneapolis-based health care system note that the results have limits, they expect broad interest from patients who have wondered for months whether their sniffles and breathing problems were related to COVID-19.

"It helps alleviate a little bit of the worry and the stress that people are experiencing," said Brittany Hartnett, a Fairview lab client relation specialist. "With just so many unknowns, this test can you give you some sort of an answer."
