The Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) and the Government of Bermuda have teamed up with US wholesale chain Costco to provide gold-standard COVID-19 testing.
The tests retail for $139.99 and are self-administered saliva tests that deliver results within the newly implemented five-day turn-around period. They are managed by Costco Pharmacy in partnership with AZOVA Health and are available throughout Bermuda and are easily accessible to all Bermuda-bound travelers.
Tests are currently available online and will also be available at more than 100 Costco locations by late December, with New York and Boston-area stores set to be among the first to offer the kits. Costco membership is not required to utilise the test service online or in-store.
Glenn Jones, BTA interim chief executive, said the move “marks a major step forward in facilitating access to pre-travel testing required for Bermuda visitors.”
