WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT COVID-19
Novel Coronavirus causes respiratory illness and is spreading rapidly around the world. Symptoms include fever, temporary loss of smell, cough, sore throat, and shortness of breaths. While many can remain asymptomatic or experience only mild symptoms, some can develop serious complications such as pneumonia, which can be life threatening. Many of the people who experience serious complications are older or have high risk comorbidities, such as diabetes, heart disease and lung disease. See Vulnerable People.
When should I take my test to ensure I receive my certificate within my required time frame?
Please let us know at least 5 days prior to your departure. At present, some airlines and destinations require testing and certificates to be issued within 48-96 hours of departure. Testing all passengers prior to flying helps to reduce Covid-19 transmission during flight. Please allow up to 24 hours to have the Swab performed and another 24-48 hours for the results to come back.
