NEW YORK (1010 WINS) --  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was tested for coronavirus antibodies at one of the testing sites that just opened in her home district of Queens over the Memorial Day Weekend.

"There we go, easy peasy, that was easy," Ocasio-Cortez said in a video she posted on Twitter on Saturday as a nurse drew her blood.

The nurse then told her she should expect to receive a call with her results in five days.

“Did you know? There are 2 types of COVID tests! The nasal swab tests if you have COVID now. Antibody blood tests check if you already had COVID, even w/ few or no symptoms,” AOC tweeted.

"I got my antibody test today at First Baptist in Queens w/ our amazing nurses. You can get one too!" she added.

AOC's antibody test was taken at one of the 28 additional testing sites opened at churches and community-based providers as an attempt to bring down the high coronavirus infection rates in the city's low-income and minority communities.
