San Francisco International Airport and Cathay Pacific Offer COVID-19 Testing to Departing Passengers

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Cathay Pacific Airways have launched a pilot program with Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care to offer COVID-19 testing to passengers departing on Cathay Pacific flights, using the airport’s onsite rapid testing facility. This partnership will provide a health screening proof-of-concept that hopes to further the development of secure travel corridors to international destinations.

Passengers traveling to Hong Kong must provide a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test taken within 72 hours before the scheduled departure flight. Cathay Pacific’s partnership with Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care allows passengers departing on Cathay Pacific flights to obtain the Hong Kong Government-approved COVID-19 PCR test onsite. This testing option for passengers is usually ready within an hour, allowing passengers to board the aircraft confident that they are COVID-19 free and have the necessary paperwork required for entry. Travelers wishing to take advantage of this onsite testing option should schedule an appointment.

Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care at SFO is open daily from 8am – 5pm, and is located on Level 1 of the International Terminal, adjacent to Boarding Area A.
