Prepared internally, no external costs.
As part of a full informed consent process. As an unvaccinated man I would like to know my natural immune status for Covid19 from a scientific standpoint. What are the tests to prove natural immunity.
In Jersey we require evidence of a previous PCR positive test in order to confirm previous infection.
PCR testing detects COVID-19 in the system. In terms of blood tests for natural immunity against COVID-19, i.e. by past infection, the Government of Jersey does not test for this specifically or offer any kind of immunity test.
A detailed overview of testing options available to show previous infection with Covid-19 can be found in the following link:
