The CDC is going door to door in metro Atlanta to test residents for antibodies

Starting today, health experts visited randomly selected homes in Fulton and DeKalb counties to conduct antibody surveys.

It’s a partnership between the county health boards, Georgia Department of Public Health and Atlanta-based Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The agencies will have teams visit randomly selected homes through May 4. People will be asked to answer questions and provide a blood sample for antibody tests.

“We encourage everyone who is visited by the teams to participate in this very important survey that can help public health officials assess how widespread COVID-19 is in certain areas,” said DPH commissioner Dr. Kathleen E. Toomey. “This is another way that Georgians can play a role in helping fight this virus.”

It'll be interesting to see the results of this survey. The people I've talked to about this have stated they will NOT open their doors.

1. It's in my neighborhood.

DeKalb and Fulton county. I'll open my door, but I'm in a gated community.
