Negative test effectively rules out the presence of the virus, whereas a positive test signifies active transmissibility.

The COVID-19 antibody analysis identifies prior exposure or active infection with SARS-CoV-2. Currently all antibody tests require administration by a healthcare professional. Presence of antibodies generally suggests some form of protection; however, it doesn’t indicate immunity from future reinfection.
