TRAVEL FAQ - ALL INFORMATION
ABOUT BOOKING FOR TRAVEL

GSU offers the RT-PCR test required for most travel. Please check your travel requirements with the airline and destination before booking your RT-PCR test with GSU. We currently do not offer testing for the state of Hawaii (more information below in the travel FAQs). 

 

We do our best to answer phone inquiries, however, all information on this website is updated daily by GSU. Please read our travel booking guidelines below.

Prior to booking a RT-PCR Covid-19 test for travel with GSU, please carefully review your destination and airline testing requirements. We are not responsible for screening or planning RT-PCR Covid-19 testing appointments within your travel dates, times and requirements by airlines and destinations. 

All appointment times below are updated daily, and we carefully accommodate same day and next day results (same day testing is only offered in our Stockton and Sacramento locations). Check rates and times for same-day and next-day testing in the appointment portal above.

For Example: If your airline and destination requires a 48-hour (2 days) window for booking and results, please choose an appointment for testing within the 2 days before your departure date. We do not recommend same day testing for travel unless it is absolutely necessary.

We carefully accommodate fast and accurate RT-PCR Covid-19 test results within the same day or the next day, all based on the appointment schedule. Please refer to the booking section to view all current dates, times, rates and locations for same or next day results. Please make sure you are booking your RT-PCR test within your required travel timeframe so your results are delivered accordingly.

We are currently not a travel testing partner for Hawaii travelers. Please proceed to this link for Hawaii-specific testing clinics and requirements: https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel-partners/

IMPORTANT FAQs

We are online booking only. Here’s why:

1.) This ensures a guaranteed appointment time and date for both the patient and the clinic staff.

2.) This creates a secure electronic patient portal which you may use to access your appointment details, test progress and most importantly, your secure test results in PDF format.

We recommend a self-swab, to remain contactless, however, if you would like some assistance, one of our staff is able to help. We use a swab to carefully collect nasal secretions, in a painless manner. 

 

1.) Insert the provided swab into each nostril, one at a time, approximately 1 inch into the nasal passage (midway). 

2.) Rotate the swab 3-4 times, remove gently, and repeat this process on the other side. 

1.) We guarantee next-day results for our RT-PCR Covid-19 tests post-specimen collection.

2.) Please expect results by end of day (5-6pm) the next day. 

3.)You will be notified via text message to the cell phone registered under your patient account that your PDF test results are ready. Please use your patient login to check the status of tests as we receive a high volume of phone calls. 

When your results are ready, you will be notified through text message. This text message will prompt you to login into your patient login (which you must create to view your test progress and test results). 

 

Follow the link to this website in the text to login and see your results, which will be delivered in a PDF formate for you to download/print for your records.
