Re: Covid Rapid Test sites? (Needed for travel)

Are any of these centers providing PCR test results quickly right now? Media reports seem to indicate there's a backlog of tests to be processed, and even people who have symptoms are waiting days for results. .

Seems a number of countries are asking for negative PCR tests, not just rapid antigen tests, and they want them no older than 72 hours. That could be a tall order if the processing is backed up.

Not sure about waiting times for results.

COVID Test Certifiate?

I'm due to travel in a week, and need to get a "COVID test certificate within 72 hours of landing"...

Any ideas if a "normal" covid test does this? The only time I did a covid test, I just got a phone call telling me I was negative... nothing else.

Does your destination require a PCR test or is a rapid test sufficient?

Re: Covid Test sites? (Needed quick results for travel)

Bern has a page where you can search for providers that are doing the test:
https://www.gef.be.ch/gef/de/index/C...anker-anchor-5

Perhaps other cantons have similar sites?

The unfortunate thing is that if you're traveling for leisure this adds quite a bit to the cost.

Re: Covid Test sites? (Needed quick results for travel)

For those near Dübendorf ZH, there is a drive-through test center. Details here https://www.balgrist.ch/en/corona-testcenter/
I know someone who was there last week, process took about 15min start to end. He got the result (negative) about 2hrs later by SMS.
