COVID-19 Testing for Travel

Need COVID-19 Testing Before You Travel? Get the Right Test at Our Urgent Care Clinics in Clarkston and Highland, MI

COVID-19 Testing Before Travel

At Springfield Urgent Care, we’ve kept pace with the ever-changing needs for coronavirus testing in the Michigan communities we serve, and we’re proud to provide our patients in the Clarkston and Highland areas with convenient access to an array of COVID-19 tests. For those who need coronavirus test results to meet travel restrictions, we offer the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test with next-day results. Although testing requirements vary by airline and travel destination (including international and state by state), the PCR test is considered the gold standard for detecting an active coronavirus infection. Generally, our PCR test will help travelers meet guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for air travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. These guidelines include:

  • Proof of a negative coronavirus test result within three days of boarding a flight
  • Requirements that all passengers wear face masks during air travel
  • Maintaining a distance of 6 feet from anyone other than your travel companions if possible

Moreover, the CDC recommends that everyone who travels during the coronavirus pandemic get tested within three to five days after returning home.

Another factor to consider when planning to travel overseas during the coronavirus pandemic is the restrictions of the country where you’re headed. Travel experts say most destinations that have enacted coronavirus-related travel restrictions require a negative PCR test result within 72 hours of travel to exempt visitors from a mandatory quarantine period. However, you’ll want to check the requirements in the specific state or country that you plan to visit.

How to Get a COVID-19 Test for Air Travel at Springfield Urgent Care

We offer the PCR COVID-19 test with next-day results at our urgent care clinics in both Clarkston and Highland. We’re open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week, and there’s no appointment needed. If you’re not experiencing symptoms, you can come right into our clinic and request testing. If you have a cough or a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, you should remain in your vehicle and call (248) 942-5888 when you arrive at Springfield Urgent Care. One of our friendly staff members will provide instructions. We ask that all patients entering our walk-in clinic wear a facial covering.

For more information about our PCR COVID-19 test with next-day results, which is recommended because it meets the guidelines for test results within three days before air travel, contact Springfield Urgent Care today. Click here to learn about the other types of coronavirus tests we offer.

“By far the best Urgent Care I’ve ever been too. First, the employees are amazing and full of positivity. They know what they are doing and get stuff done. You actually feel safe there. I’ve never felt safe in an urgent care before from bad experiences until I walked into this one. I’m beyond grateful. I have to mention how beautiful and CLEAN the building is. If you need an urgent care go to this one you will not be disappointed.”

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”
