Traveling During COVID-19?

We can help.

How Nytingale can help:

  • Provide telemedicine service testing so you can test at home.

  • We send a testing kit "overnight" so you can test the next day*.

  • Schedule your testing appointment or test early when you have your testing kit.

  • Our lab partner is CLIA certified and has FDA Emergency Use Authorization for their testing method.

  • The testing method can detect the new UK, South Africa, and Brazil variants.

  • Saliva samples, no uncomfortable nasal swab needed.

  • Prepaid overnight shipping back to lab.

  • Fast turnaround times. 24-48 hours from lab receipt (usually sooner).

*IMPORTANT:  Testing times can be impacted by delivery times.  Please be aware that your registration must be complete before a kit is shipped.  If your registration is completed by 11am on a weekday, your kit will ship that day.  A viral test (checking for active infection) will be shipped to you overnight.  An antibody test will ship UPS 2 day.  Return shipping is free.  A viral test returned to lab ships overnight.  An antibody test ships 2 days.

CDC's Travel Guidelines and Recommendations for Flying

New Travel Requirements (2/2/2021):

All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board a flight to the United States. See the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

Get Tested Before and After Travel

  • If you are traveling, get tested with a viral test 1-3 days before your trip. Make sure you have the results of your negative test before you travel. Keep a copy of your results with you during travel; you might be asked for them.

  • Do not travel if you test positive. Immediately isolate yourself, and follow public health recommendations.

  • Get tested again with a viral test 3-5 days after your trip and stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel, even if your test is negative. If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.

  • You may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. Regardless of where you traveled or what you did during your trip, take these actions to protect others from getting COVID-19 after travel:

    • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who did not travel with you. It’s important to do this everywhere — both indoors and outdoors. Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public settings. Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

    • If there are people in the household who did not travel with you, wear a mask and ask everyone in the household to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home for 14 days after travel.

    • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

    • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness.

    • Watch your health: Look for symptoms of COVID-19.

After You Travel

You may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread the virus to others. You and your travel companions (including children) may pose a risk to your family, friends, and community after your travel.

Get Tested and Stay Home After Travel

  • Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.

    • Even if you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.

    • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.

  • If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.

  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.

Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements after travel.

Also, take these actions after you return from travel to protect others from getting COVID-19:

  • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who did not travel with you. It’s important to do this everywhere — both indoors and outdoors.

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public settings. Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

  • If there are people in the household who did not travel with you, wear a mask  and ask everyone in the household to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home for 14 days after travel.

  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness.

  • Watch your health: Look for symptoms of COVID-19.
