From the “golden standard” PCR test required for most travel to rapid result antigen testing, ARCpoint Labs has the right test for your situation. We partner with labs across the nation to get you the information you need to make responsible decisions about traveling, returning to work, or just getting the peace of mind you need.

During your travels, it is still imperative that you take the necessary precautions to limit your exposure by wearing a mask and practicing safe distancing. While safe distancing may not be a viable option in close-proximity spaces such as an airplane, wearing a mask can lower your risk of being infected with COVID-19. Washing your hands and sanitizing after touching high-traffic areas such as handrails, elevator buttons, and handles can lower your risk as well. For more information regarding COVID-19, please only use trusted sources of information such as the CDC and WHO.
