How Our Travel Testing Works
The nature and required specifications of COVID-19 tests (as mandated by various governments and regulating agencies) may change without prior notice. Please ensure your destination country (and any country where you have a layover) will accept the test you select for entry, and that the test date requested complies with their screening requirements (generally within 24, 36, or 72 hours before flight departure).
A trained healthcare worker will attend your hotel, workplace, or home in the Whistler area to collect a sample.
Samples for Rapid-Antigen tests will be processed by the healthcare worker at your location. Results are generally available within 30 minutes.
Samples for Rapid-PCR tests will be processed either by the healthcare worker at your location or by Airwolf Medical lab personnel in Whistler. Results are generally available within 30 minutes for on-site analysis, or 1-2 hours with centralized processing.
Samples for RT-PCR tests be sent to a medical laboratory accredited by the British Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. Results are generally available within 24-36 hours, and will be emailed to you by Airwolf Medical.
Please note that we are required to report all positive test results directly to the Provincial public health office, as mandated by current government regulations, who will contact you with instructions for further testing and care.
All customers (and others present) are required to follow COVID-19 safety protocols, which include wearing a mask and following social distancing guidelines, while the healthcare worker is present at your location.
Prior to testing, all customers will be asked for their written consent and agreement to our Terms and Conditions for the testing service.
Payment will be processed at the time of testing (credit / debit card preferred).
We believe our procedures are safe, convenient, and efficient, and thank you for selecting Airwolf Medical for your travel screening!
About Rapid Antigen Testing
Rapid Antigen (Rapid Ag) tests are a convenient way to quickly screen for COVID-19 infections. A sample will be collected by a trained healthcare professional and directly applied to a test kit. After the reagents have processed the sample, the healthcare worker will then interpret and provide the result, generally within 30 minutes.
About Rapid PCR Testing
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests are a sensitive and accurate method for detecting COVID-19 infections. A sample will be collected by a trained healthcare professional and then analyzed either on-site or at a central location in Whistler, using specialized reagents and equipment. Results are generally available within 30 minutes for on-site analysis or 1-2 hours with centralized processing.
About RT-PCR Testing
Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) tests are the most sensitive and accurate method for detecting COVID-19 infections. Samples are collected by trained healthcare professionals and then analyzed at a medical laboratory accredited by the British Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. Results are generally available within 24-36 hours, and will be emailed to you by Airwolf Medical.
