    72 hour testing requirement

    Hi everyone,
    Has anyone from Florida been able to get tested and have their results back within the 72 hours timeframe that Aruba is requiring to enter the country? I know some other states can get tested when they get there, but if you are from Florida they won’t do it.
    I have been trying to find a facility in Florida that can do this and not having any luck. I was tested last month, they told me 5 to 7 days maybe more. It took 3 weeks to get my results.
    Please let me know if you have found anyplace where you can get the results back within the 72 hour time frame.
    thank you

    the urgent care at TGH has been averaging 9 hours if requested.
    it is a PCR nail swab
    in not a script, it runs abut $200

    Thank you Andrea for responding so quickly
    Is TCH in Tampa? I am on the East coast, but will go to wherever I need to.
    so please tell me where it is so I can call for an appointment.
    thanks again,

    Please be sure to get the correct PCR test. There are a couple of reports of people having their tests rejected after arrival and requiring another test at the airport in Aruba.
    what is best in life ?

    In NJ I was able to find a place that did the rapid nasal molecular test. Results in 30 minutes.
    This was accepted by Aruba.

    This is response I received from Aruba Tourism Authority:

    "As long that it's a Molecular test it is acceptable. Authorized PCR test applicable for Aruba is the combined nasal / oral specimen through PCR testing (PCR/Molecular/RNA/NAA(T)/ID NOW). If pre-uploading one of the following on the ED Card online platform prior to arrival, Antigen/AG QL IA/FIA, a PCR Home kit, or another type of test, you will be required to conduct a PCR test, upon arrival."

    If you submit RAPID COVID-19 Test, you will be tested again at the Airport!
