West Palm PCR test locations?

We're getting ready to hopefully head over to the bahamas from the lake worth area soon. Will anyone who has recently sailed to the bahamas from lake worth area let me know where they did their PCR test and how long it took to get results? We've been researching online and have a couple ideas, but thought I'd reach out to the community for suggestions from anyone that's actually done it recently.

Thanks!

Re: West Palm PCR test locations?

We left from lake worth, but at the end of November. I assume much has changed since then.
But if it helps, we used bluemed consulting to do our covid test. Results were back in about 4 hours. They did cost more, but came to us and fast tracked the results. That meant no rental car or uber, reduced our exposure, and gave us a bigger window to cross.
We were quite happy with them.
Good luck, and see you over here!

Re: West Palm PCR test locations?

well I sailed last Sunday from Marathon, but went up to Ft Lauderdale for test and got on Friday afternoon at Lab Doctor and had the results when I got up Sat morning. Went onto the Bahamas site and entered the data and uploaded my info and that was all approved within 2 hours from starting entry

be sure to print out at least 2 copies of your health visa and 1 of your test results for use latert

We tested last Wednesday at 08:15 at the free testing site in Jupiter and had the results in 13 hours. Make an appointment.
