BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County Commission has approved a contract with a medical vendor to provide rapid COVID-19 testing at Palm Beach International Airport.

The contract, with Helix Virtual, is valued at $27,845 and runs through September of 2021. There are renewal options each year for the next three years.
As many states and regions require a negative COVID-19 test before arrival to avoid a 10 or 14-day quarantine, the rapid airport testing is considered a vital airport offering. For now, the only people eligible to use the service will be people traveling within 72 hours of the test being administered.
Helix expects to offer limited additional medical services once it gets up and running in its 851 square foot facility in the airport.
Helix will accept cash as well as insurance depending on your provider, terms and conditions.
