The Washington Travel Clinic is capable of performing PCR testing for SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) and delivering results in 15 minutes. The covid test consists of a nasal or oral swab that is processed on-site by PCR (also known as RT-PCR). Results are delivered to you while you wait. For travelers who need a rapid antigen test, we perform a test in the office with results in 10 minutes.
We also offer covid testing by PCR to travelers staying in DC hotels. We can collect an oral or nasal specimen from you at your hotel room and deliver the result to you within 2 hours by email, text, or hand-delivery to your hotel concierge. Click here for details.
We do NOT require a referral by another healthcare provider. Patients with symptoms should refrain from presenting to the office. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, sore throat, or runny nose, please visit the website of your state’s Department of Health for testing locations.
