Voluntary antibody testing of first responders in Alpharetta has found that 10 police officers and firefighters have coronavirus antibodies, which indicates they were previously exposed to the COVID-19 virus, city officials announced Friday. The positive antibody tests do not mean the first responders currently have COVID-19, only that their immune systems were triggered due to previous infection, according to a release on the city's website. The 10 employees have undergone coronavirus testing and none have tested positive for the virus. Alpharetta was the first city in Georgia to provide antibody testing to first responders. The program had 127 of the city's 192 police officers and firefighters voluntarily undergo testing.
