Any suggestions on a good PCR testing location that actually gets you the information you need before traveling in NYC area. The city md is a rapid and I dont think meets the requirements.

I love how Aruba is actually being pretty smart with this.
I had covid in November and they actually will take a positive test that is 2-12 weeks old or a negative 72 hours before.

Prohealth and NorthWell have walk in locations in the City and surrounding areas. They offer the 15 minute Abbott ID Now test which Aruba accepts and the healthy Mrs. AJ and I took prior to our trip to Aruba.

Thanks, the biggest issue is you pay for this and then they don't have the results back before you travel, that is the problem I am finding with most testing is getting the actual paperwork back.

How long are the lines for the arrival testing? Just in case.

I found some really interesting info on the aruba.com website. Positive test 2-12 weeks old can be accepted in liu of a negative test so I am all set. Its just my travel partner I am worried about - she tested the other day and they told her 5-10 days for the pcr test.

You'll have to ask someone who has just arrived how long they were in line, but I can tell you that they did 791 tests at the airport yesterday, which is a LOT.
