maryland covid testing

On February 18th, the CDC began requiring that people get tested for COVID-19 1-3 days before traveling.[1] It’s important to make sure you are negative for the virus before and after traveling, as you will be in close contact with other people.

If you are planning to travel, Avalon Laboratory Solutions has your back! We can deliver results within 24 hours, so that you can be sure to have them in time for your flight. You will be given a detailed copy of your results that you can show to airport security; we even test for specific COVID-19 strains.

While airline travel has changed since COVID-19, it certainly hasn’t stopped. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, on Thanksgiving 2020 the total number of flights were down, but the number of trips between 50 and 500 miles increased by almost 46.7 million.[2]

There are many reasons you may need to travel, and it’s important that you can do so safely. The CDC also recommends that people get tested 3-5 days after they return from their trip. You can count on Avalon Laboratory Solutions for fast and accurate results both before and after your trip, which will reduce the stress of travel and bring peace of mind.

Everyone’s availability is different, which is why there is no one-size-fits-all method for COVID-19 testing. At Avalon Lab Solutions, we can schedule you immediately to be tested in two different ways: through drive-in testing at our lab, or an at-home test.
