  1. Those people who require time-sensitive outbound travel tests should use the services of one of the private labs, Helix Genetic and Scientific Solutions, or C & S West Limited. Both of these labs are certified to carry out COVID-19 testing and diagnostics. The MDL is processing thousands of tests each day, and for those who must travel, a private lab may be a quicker option at this time.
  2. If a resident has travelled in the last 14 days and needs to travel again, they are still in the traveller 14 day guidance window and can book an appointment at Perot Post Office to get their outbound test.
