Can a ESD gun test a RFIC without directly touching the IC?

If there is a thin layer of sheilding in between the RFIC and ESD gun would the ESD still reach the RFIC ?
By shielding, you mean ?
if its a grounded conducting shield that should shield you from the ESD strike
though current flowing int he shield could still cause a current in the rf circuit by capacative coupling.
if the shield is none conducting, then the esd will just jump straight through
