TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — You can now be tested for COVID-19 antibodies at Bragg Memorial Stadium.

Antibody testing will determine if you've had COVID-19 already and built up antibodies.

Testing for antibodies will happen on the back end of the stadium, away from coronavirus testing.

Antibody testing is a blood draw that will bring back results in as quickly as 15 minutes.

"We're still trying to get the word out," said Tanya Tatum, the director of Student Health Services at FAMU. "We've had a number of appointments and people walking in to get tested. We're hoping it continues to go well."

Bragg can test about 200 people for antibodies per day.

It's appointment only, so call the Leon County Department of Health ahead of time.
