Northshore Medical is offering a range of  Covid PCR and Antigen testing options, including fast turnaround for those planning to travel, SafeKeys, at home VIP Covid-19 testing, carside testing options and more.

A spokesperson said, “Covid-19 has taken the world by storm for the past two years and many are stressed out and seeking convenient and affordable healthcare options to help with this pandemic. However, it’s the holidays, a time where we are supposed to be happy, spend time with family, and even travel for vacation or to see family. Northshore Medical has always been forward-thinking in Bermuda’s healthcare and they pride themselves on responding to their clients and patients ongoing need for convenient yet affordable healthcare solutions.

“Many may not even be aware, but recently stricter Covid-19 testing rules for travelers entering the US are due to take effect 12:01 ET on Monday December 6th, from the Biden administration. This new rule requires each traveler from another country to test negative one day before their departure, changing rules that had allowed inbound travelers previously to test up to 3 days before entering the USA. NMAC is encouraging residents and guests alike to also stay abreast of these updates in their respective countries or travel destinations as they are rapidly changing.

“NMAC wants to ensure travelers do not miss their flights as they travel for the holiday season and utilize their same day testing center. NorthShore Medical Center has been successfully doing same day Covid-19 testing this year from their COLA Certified and Bermuda Government approved Laboratory. They have both PCR Testing and Antigen Testing options available for travelers for 1 hour to same day results and they advise the public to be sure to check their airlines and travel destinations for the type of test they need before booking.”

Dr. Kyjuan Brown, NMAC’s Medical Director advises the public, “Don’t take the risk and miss your flight, we encourage you to book your test with NMAC as we have a whole Covid-19 Center geared at serving the island with same day and emergency results for travelers needing to return home or travel for the holidays.”

“The benefits of Northshore’s Covid-19 Center convenience does not stop there. With the recent local government changes, NMAC has added a new service to serve our island. For those Bermuda residents traveling to later return back to Bermuda, NMAC recommends that they learn about their convenient Rapid Antigen test travel option.

“This new option launched this Friday to allow residents an easy way to return back to Bermuda to save residents time and hassle from having to waste their travel time locating where to get tested and then waiting for their Covid-19 results while abroad.

“There are only four easy steps to this convenient and affordable travel testing option: Step 1 : Book online ; Step 2 : Collect your antigen test from Northshore Medical before you leave Bermuda; Step 3: Log into NMACs TeleHealth system at the time of your appointment; at which time they would supervise the collection and processing of your sample.; Step 4: Official results will be emailed to you within 15 minutes.

Dr. Brown said, “With our Rapid Antigen Test for Bermuda residents, returning back home is now simpler! Our Covid-19 Center is forever changing and improving to aim for convenience so we can best care for our clients. We also now can provide SafeKeys from our Covid-19 Testing Center which is what our clients have been asking for.”

“The convenience doesn’t stop there Bermuda! NMAC also offers at home VIP Covid-19 testing, group testing, Antibody testing, oral swab testing, as well at carside testing options. These options are ideal for those who don’t feel comfortable around others, who love the comfort of their own homes, or for those who maybe symptomatic.
