  • Persons who come from historically marginalized populations
  • Healthcare workers or first responders (e.g. EMS, law enforcement, fire department, military)
  • Front-line and essential workers (grocery store clerks, gas station attendants, etc.) in settings where social distancing is difficult to maintain
  • *CDC does not recommend using antibody testing to diagnose acute infection.
