SFO’s relocates onsite rapid Covid testing centre to Edwin M. Lee International Departures Hall

The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) announced plans to relocate its onsite rapid COVID testing centre, the first such facility at any U.S. airport. The testing centre will remain in the International Terminal, but effective March 15, 2021, the site has moved from Level 1, Courtyard A to Level 3, at the Aisle 6 ticket counter in the Edwin M. Lee International Departures Hall.

This new location provides travellers with easier access to other airport facilities for their travel, including ticket counters, security checkpoints, and shopping and dining.

SFO opened the first onsite rapid testing in the nation in July 2020, initially for airport workers only. In October 2020, the site expanded to offer testing to United Airlines passengers to Hawaii, and other airlines have since been added. The testing site is operated by Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care and administers an Abbott ID Now Nucleic Acid Amplification Test.

COVID-19 rapid testing for travellers at SFO is by appointment only.
