The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has become the first airport in the United States to launch the rapid COVID-19 testing program for airport employees. The airport has tied up with Dignity Health-Go Health for the same.

This partnership provides employee testing both at airport and at nearby Dignity Health-GoHealth care locations.

The airport testing facility, located in the International Terminal, is currently returning test results in less than an hour, and anticipates further reductions in test result wait times.

The GoHealth Urgent Care Return to Work program provides knowledgeable and experienced clinical guidance and resources, rapid COVID-19 testing capabilities and a tailored COVID-19 care program to evaluate, test and care for airport employees to ensure their ongoing health and well-being. SFO selected the GoHealth Urgent Care program to streamline the process and protect its employees.

Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care’s dedicated COVID-19 testing area (located outside of the terminal and away from passenger traffic) will be available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and employees will be able to save their spot in advance online via the GoHealth Urgent Care link shared by their employer.

“SFO continues to take action to protect the health and safety of both our employees and our travelers,” said Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. “Thanks to this partnership with Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, SFO is the first US airport to offer convenient testing for airport employees with rapid results. I am grateful to the entire team who made this milestone a reality.”

“From the beginning of the pandemic, we have been working with employers across our national footprint to provide solutions and strategies to safeguard their employees’ health while they safely ramp up operations,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care.
