COVID-19 Traveler Testing at Olive Labs: The Drive-Up Self-Test

If you live in the Detroit area and have a Domestic or International flight coming up, visit to book your COVID-19 Pre-flight test. Select either Same-Day Result (12-hour turnaround time - book your appointment before noon for same-day results), or Next-Day Result (24-hour turnaround time - book your appointment before 3 pm).

Olive Labs is unique in its commitment to a maximum 24-hour turnaround time, and can also provide same-day results if the testing appointment is booked before noon. When it comes to airline travel, you cannot risk a delay in obtaining your COVID-19 test results, which are usually required within 72 hours of travel.

On your appointment date and time, drive to Olive Labs, located at 150 Livernois Street in Ferndale, MI 48220 for your “Drive-Up Self-Test.” Upon arrival, remain in the comfort of your vehicle and text the office that you have arrived. At your appointment time, you will be asked to pull up to the front of the building, and will be given a swab by staff and directions for taking a sample yourself (a painless 10-second swirling of the swab on the inside of both nostrils). Results will be emailed to you as a PDF through a secure online portal. 

Olive Labs administers a molecular RT-PCR (Real Time PCR) test, which can only be performed by a high complexity CLIA-certified lab, a test which meets the strictest FDA guidelines for COVID-19 testing. 

Check the pre-flight testing requirements for your destination, and make sure you book your testing appointment at Olive Labs accordingly. Most travelers book their appointment 2 days before travel, and with Olive Labs’ 24-hour turnaround time, they have their results in hand the day before they travel, which means they are securely within the 72 hour pre-flight testing requirement.
