Numi Health Announces Multi City Airport COVID Testing Program
CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Numi Health Inc. (“Numi” or the “Company”), Canada’s premier mobile medical services company, announces the launch of COVID testing at the Calgary and Edmonton International Airports.
Numi is the exclusive provider of COVID antigen tests in Calgary and Edmonton Airports. These tests are currently needed to board KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flights as, in addition to a PCR test up to 72 hours before departure, the Netherlands is requiring an antigen COVID test for all passengers 4 hours prior to boarding. Numi offers both kinds of testing.The rapid antigen testing is available before each scheduled KLM flight on the day of departure. The test involves a nasal swab performed by a Numi Health professional. It is quick and painless. The entire process, from swab to result, takes less than 30 minutes. The test is Health Canada and FDA-approved.At the airport, passengers first proceed to the testing center and are met by KLM staff to ensure they qualify to travel and have the negative results to a 72-hour PCR test. Then Numi personnel proceed with the antigen testing. Each passenger receives a printed and electronic travel certificate that is date-stamped less than four hours from the scheduled departure time and can then proceed to their check-in with the airline.The Numi testing team is located on the international departures level at both airports, close to the check-in counters. No pre-booking of antigen tests is required at this time, but this will soon be available on the Numi Health website.
