At the airport after you land…
Look for banners with the CDC, XpresCheck, and Concentric logos. Our on-site staff will provide you with a pamphlet and consent form to fill out to participate in the in-airport PCR test and to receive an at-home PCR kit for later.View pamphlet
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.

At home test
How do I get the results of my at-home test?
You will need to create an account and register your test in our secure patient portal. You will be notified when your test result is available, which can be viewed in your account ~24-48 hours after your sample arrives at the lab. If your sample tests positive for COVID-19, you will also be notified by Concentric via phone call. Further details can be found in the at-home test kit.
