COVID-19 Testing for International Travelers – FAQs
Do we offer PCR testing for traveling outside of the country?
Yes, we offer RT-PCR COVID testing as well as rapid COVID testing
Do I need a COVID-19 test before my international trip?
A/ Many countries require that travelers provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test before allowing entry. Please consult your airline prior to travel. In many cases, test samples must be collected and negative test results produced within 72 hours of departure or, in some cases, arrival. However, some destinations offer broader windows.
When should I get tested for COVID-19 when traveling internationally?
The CDC recommends that travelers get tested 1-3 days before traveling by plane internationally.
Do you offer COVID-19 testing to companies who want to protect employees?
Yes. Either companies have a contract with us where testing would be paid for by the company (if you need more information, contact the office manager at 301-441-4400), or the employees would walk in for testing and would be billed to their insurance.
What should I do if my test comes back positive?
If you test positive for COVID-19 by a viral test, know what protective steps to take if you are sick or caring for someone. Isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected and follow CDC guidelines. If you have any symptoms, make an appointment here for a telemedicine visit with one of our providers.
What does a negative COVID-19 test mean?
If you test negative for COVID-19 by a viral test, you probably were not infected at the time your sample was collected. However, that does not mean you will not get sick. The test result only means that you did not have COVID-19 at the time of testing.
What do the COVID-19 tests detect?
Rapid Test: This test will detect if you are actively infected with the COVID-19 virus and is most accurate with symptoms of less than 5-day duration.
If you are actively experiencing COVID-19 symptoms such as:
Fever or chills, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Fatigue, Muscle or body aches, Headache, New loss of taste or smell, Sore throat, Congestion or runny nose, Nausea or vomiting, Diarrhea
And its within 5 days of symptom onset, we recommend the Rapid Test to be done as early as possible
