SFO first U.S. airport with rapid COVID-19 testing for employees

in Community/Featured/Headline

The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has become the first airport in the nation to implement a first rapid COVID-19 testing program for airport employees, providing testing at the airport and also at nearby Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Bay Area care locations.

The program, which launched with the testing of airline flight crews in late July, includes a testing site at International Terminal, located outside of the terminal and away from passenger traffic. It is currently returning test results in less than an hour and further reductions in result wait times are anticipated, SFO said. Employees can book their testing appointments online.

SFO partnered with GoHealth Urgent Care’s Return to Work program, which is offered to companies and includes “a tailored COVID-19 plan for employee health, comprehensive clinical evaluation and testing, on-demand access to leadership and clinical guidance, and ongoing consultation on each employer’s COVID-19 strategy.” More information on the employer-sponsored Return to Work program can visit here.
