Following any antibody test you must still follow government advice on social distancing, hand-washing and isolation.
Having antibodies simply makes it more likely that you will not have a second infection or, failing that, that a second infection would be milder compared with a similar person who has no such antibodies. However, it is still not proven that you immune from COVID-19 once you have developed the antibodies.
If your test comes back positive then you must self-isolate for at least 10 days after your positive test date.
People you live with or are travelling with should also self-isolate for 10 days from the date you took a test. You must not travel around or outside the UK until the self-isolation period has ended.
