The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in ways that we could never have imagined. Our social habits have been greatly affected and so have our travel ones. The travel industry has taken a massive hit millions of people worldwide cancelling their holiday and travel plans. Several months later and things are beginning to look slightly brighter! The skies are opening up and so are the countries, with people enjoying the pleasure of travelling again.

Over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, the importance of reliable, accessible testing to screen for the Coronavirus disease has become increasingly apparent and the travel industry is no exemption to this! Travel restrictions are constantly changing and many airlines and countries are now asking their passengers and visitors to get COVID19 PCR Tests to prove that they have had a negative COVID-19 test result in the 72 hours prior to their travel. This system is gaining massive popularity and countries and airlines alike will be requesting PCR testing. That is why we are now offering COVID PCR testing in Glasgow!
So… What is a COVID19 PCR Test?
PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. This test is designed and used to directly detect the presence of the genetic materiel/antigens of the COVID-19 virus rather than the presence of the body’s immune response, or antibodies. This is only possible if the virus is present and someone is actively infected. The tests can tell whether or not someone has the virus very early on by detecting viral RNA (ribonucleic acid), which will be present in the body before antibodies form or symptoms of the disease are present. At the moment the majority of the current Covid-19 tests that all the reports are coming from are using the PCR test. PCR tests give us a good indication of who is infected and who is not.

Who is the Test for?
The COVID PCR tests are for people of all ages who are planning on travelling to a foreign country. The test is not suitable for those who have COVID-19 like symptoms or for those who have had symptoms up to 28 days prior to the test – these people should follow all government guidance regarding self-isolation and testing. Most travellers are now required to have a certificate/document to prove to airlines and countries they are visiting that they do not have an active COVID-19 infection – therefore make sure to check if you need one!
As regulations might differ, depending on the destination or airline, please make sure that you check for the most up to date travel information. You can do this by speaking to your airline directly or by simply visiting the Foreign Office Website where more details and guidance can be found.
