ObGyn Varicella in Pregnancy!

I was reading MTB 3 and came upon a question on P 387 about varicella in pregnancy. The presentation was clear with pruritic vesicles over neck, breast, and chest, and fever and malaise. She also has contractions every 5 mins, What is the next step in management?

The answer written is varicella zoster antibody assay.
but doenst it make more sense to give VariZIG given the clear presentation :/ by the time the assay is out wouldnt she have delivered??
