Traveling during the pandemic can be very stressful and complicated. Since July 2020, PCL has provided COVID-19 RT-PCR tests for travelers to more than 96 countries. We provide full, detailed reports containing all the necessary elements required for departure.
PCL follows-up to ensure all patients receive their results in an encrypted and secure process. Result Reports are emailed same day and next day, we also provide printed reports at our location for pick up. We accept both walk-ins and appointments.
