Travel Related Screening Test

If requesting an appointment for travel purposes, please remember to check the pre-travel requirements and advisories for your intended destination.  Calgary Co-op is not responsible for determining the timing required for your test.  For certain destinations, a Rapid Antigen Screening Test is accepted to provide as your negative viral test for travel purposes, but some countries still require a COVID-19 PCR Test instead.  Requirements for travel are changing frequently and each destination is different.  It is the responsibility of the passenger to check the entry requirements and what type of test is needed for the intended destination.

Please Note: One appointment required for each individual (For Example: A family of 4 will require 4 separate appointments).
