COVID Tests for Travel

Many airlines and travel destinations now require proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 tests before you can obtain your boarding pass. If you are planning a trip, be sure to stay informed about the latest guidelines so you do not get left at the gate.

The general rule for most destinations that require testing, is that you must show proof of a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of your trip. In some cases, a PCR test is specifically required, where other destinations may accept a rapid COVID test as proof. Be sure you know the specifics for your departure and destination city. Remember, it takes Innovative Covid 2-4 days to get PCR results from the lab. Why roll the dice? If you need a PCR within 72 hours for a trip, please go to COVID of Chicago for same-day PCR results.

Need to fly after a recent COVID diagnosis? 

Getting a negative test result can take several weeks after you have had COVID. If you were diagnosed with COVID in the last three months and need to travel, a note from a physician stating you are cleared for the trip may be needed. Schedule a COVID follow up telemedicine appointment to speak with one of our providers and obtain travel documentation.
