April 26, The data, which is based on proprietary information from PCR testing services administered by Walgreens and performed by its testing partner Aegis Sciences, shows an 88 percent increase in omicron BA.
The data reinforces the importance of testing and other precautions in helping to mitigate the spread of COVID Kevin Ban, Walgreens chief medical officer. If you feel sick and think you may have COVID, getting an antigen or PCR test is important to see if you have the illness so you can take action quickly such as isolating yourself from family members, if needed. Who should get tested? People who are not fully vaccinated should be tested immediately after an exposure and again at days following exposure if the first test is negative.
People who tested positive for COVID within the past 3 months and recovered, do not need to get tested after exposure as long as they do not have symptoms. Appointments are scheduled through the Walgreens website. Return your kit with free overnight return shipping the same day you take your sample.
You can also take test at home, with results available within 15 minutes. Walgreens offers both the PCR test, a rapid diagnostic test, and the rapid antigen test. For the rapid diagnostic test, results are usually available within 24 hours.
Lastly, they offer the rapid antigen test. The test is offered at limited locations and results are available within one hour. The drive-thru sites use a PCR self-administered nasal swab to test for active infection. This test allows those being tested to swab their own nose on-site while in their vehicles, observed by a trained Walmart pharmacist to ensure the sample is taken correctly, and then the sealed sample is dropped into a container on their way out of the drive-thru site.
– How long does it take to get rt pcr test results from walgreens
The other option was Wednesday at PM but that would be past the 72 hours technically but then we risk not getting the results back as fast. I would personally test on Wednesday at p. They do not look at the exact timing of your test to verify that it is indeed exactly 72 hours.
If that time slot is still available, I’d grab it. We tested on a Wednesday and arrived on a Saturday and I wasn’t hung up on the exact timing of our test. We flew through the airport with no difficulty. This is accepted for entrance to PR and you’ll get your results much quicker.
Thanks so much for the quick response. My husband and I just changed our appointments to Wednesday at and I do not see Abbot ID testing options on the Walgreens site?
I live in Germantown, WI.. I feel much better about testing Wed. I think we should be okay for this trip using the drive-thru test. If we go to PR again soon, which we will I may look into that again but who know if things will have changed by then. If interested in the future, you might have to broaden your search and travel to a different Walgreens to obtain the NOW ID test.
They have the lab equipment right on site at certain Walgreens for in-store quick results and it is pricey equipment, thus less locations.
Okay- that is good to know. I have no problem with going to other Walgreens locations, is Now ID a rapid test? The Walgreens locations closest to us don’t even offer the PCR testing right now. We are getting our PCR test done in Grafton. Hopefully everything goes smoothly. Thanks again! Just curious, did you get a PCR test from Walgreens?
If so, how long before you got your results back? American Airlines states PCR. I’m confused a bit now. As you mentioned, there are MANY available sites. The key word is “molecular. This is exactly what we did and had absolutely no trouble. If I remember correctly, we did receive our results in about 48 hours, but it’s never guaranteed.
American Airlines is not the one checking your Covid results for travel to Puerto Rico. You will show your results once in PR and trying to exit the PR airport. For me living in MI the turnaround time is quicker if you are tested on the weekend because the labs are sent to a different, and closer, laboratory. Wow, interesting, Natalie. I hope I’m not giving out misinformation. That is not my intent.
It’ll be interesting to see how things play out. Great idea for you to get two tests! Something went horribly wrong with the Pixel turnaround and I just received my results today, 14 days after FedEx’ing them.
So glad I had a backup test. Skip to main content. Sign in to get trip updates and message other travelers. Browse all 46, Puerto Rico topics ». Walgreens PCR test and timing results. Watch this Topic. Browse forums All Browse by destination.
