How to Get a Rapid Antigen Test at LAX
Los Angeles International Airport is offering two types of rapid antigen tests for COVID-19, with results in an hour or less.
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) currently hosts three onsite COVID-19 testing locations. The testing is performed by Clarity Labs in their onsite laboratory. Clarity Labs offers both the standard PCR test as well as a rapid antigen test. Rapid antigen tests offer the convenience of not having to make multiple trips to obtain test results before flying. Simply show up on your travel date and head straight to the rapid antigen testing site inside Terminal 6 near baggage claim. Guests receive their results in one hour or less.
Not all destinations accept rapid antigen tests and a traditional PCR test may be required. Clarity Labs offers PCR tests all all testing sites at LAX. The central lab is situated across from Terminal 6 and returns results in 3-5 hours. The site features large, shaded umbrellas where travelers can wait for their test results.
Two additional satellite labs can be found in Terminal 2 on the lower level near baggage claim. The third testing site is inside the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) on the upper level. Results from tests taken at either of the two satellite locations return results in less than 24 hours.
All tests performed by Clarity Labs are certified to meet the current entry requirements to the state of Hawaii. Guests receive their test results electronically, and receipts are provided for insurance purposes.
Clarity Labs is a third-party provider, and as such, LAX airport does not maintain nor have access to guests’ personal information or test results.
How To Book an Appointment with Clarity Labs
Clarity Labs offers convenient online booking. Walk-ins are also accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fees range from $80 for the rapid antigen test to $125 for the standard PCR test.
