If you received an at-home test as part of your participation in the CDC Traveler Program, you will no longer be able to register your test beginning September 23, 2022. Concentric would like to thank you for volunteering to take part in this program. You can get information on airport testing programs here. If you have any questions please contact (844) 943-0192.
Be on the lookout for our COVID-19 testing area when you land from select flights. We are currently in four international airports – JFK, EWR, ATL, and SFO.
“I do what I gotta do to help out and keep everybody safe.”

“Early detection and sequencing of new variants entering the United States are crucial to our ability to better understand the virus and assess the threat it poses to public health.”

What is a pooled test?
A pooled test combines lower nasal swab samples from several people and tests them together. A pooled test shows whether anyone in the pool is infected with COVID-19, but it does not show specifically who is infected.
Why should I participate?
Getting tested after your flight will help the CDC detect COVID-19 variants. Participation is completely voluntary but important in helping us combat the spread of COVID-19.
