People get tested if they are notified they've been exposed.

The idea one wouldn't use the manufacturers' guidelines in a drug study is quite preposterous.

What happened with these monoclonal antibody studies is because they weren't approved, they were given as a last ditch effort to the sickest patients. I imagine you could get the drugs if you were rich enough and/or properly connected.

So whether or not they benefitted the sickest patients was looked at and they didn't show much benefit.
