Vitality Urgent Care Provides COVID-19 Testing via RT-PCR technology

Vitality Urgent Care Provides the RT PCR COVID-19 tests in our testing facility by appointment only. Our team is dedicated to delivering results with a turn-around time of fewer than 8 hours. We understand the tight Travel deadlines and provide peace of mind for your next trip.

What kind of Pre-Travel COVID-19 tests does Vitality Urgent Care offer and why?

  1. RT-PCR (Real-Time PCR) COVID-19 Nasal or oral swab that has been authorized by the FDA and developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific. This test has been authorized for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Results < 8 hours.
  2. RT-PCR (Real-Time PCR) COVID-19 Nasal test has been authorized by the FDA. Xpert® Xpress SARS-CoV-2 is a rapid real-time RT-PCR test developed by Cepheid. Results < 2 hours.

We selected this particular technology for Pre-Travel testing due to being highly accurate and most reliable. RT-PCR tests continue to be “the gold standard” for clinical diagnostic detection of Coronavirus disease.

In addition, many countries require incoming visitors to have a negative RT-PCR or PCR COVID-19 test 48 – 72 hours prior to entry. Most countries will reject the proof of a negative Antigen test, so it is important to be aware of the country’s specific requirements in place for border entry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
