In brief: Yes

This affliction that surfaced in 2003 created quite a stirr & fear that it would become an international pandemic.
The gene sequence and identification were worked our and a lab test designed. Some state health departments have this capability. Given the lack of further problems the issue seems to have faded. See www.Cdc.Gov/ncidod/sars.

Polymerase chain reaction (pcr) is used to identify the virus.
However, there have been no cases for several years after the initial outbreak.
