Know the Travel Guidelines for Your Destination Before You Go

*Rules for COVID-19 testing and quarantining can vary greatly among U.S. states. Some destinations may not accept test results from self-collected samples; please check with your destination to confirm. Visit the CDC’s Travel Planner to be routed to the relevant health department in order to understand what’s required before traveling to that destination. Pixel by Labcorp services are only available in the US. If you are traveling internationally, you’re unable to ship kits from international locations.

The CDC has different travel guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated people—and recommends delaying travel until you’re fully vaccinated. Click here for the latest information on domestic travel and here for the latest on international travel. The agency’s website notes that even fully vaccinated people are at risk of getting and spreading new COVID-19 variants when traveling.

Can I purchase a kit for travel?

The Pixel by Labcorp® COVID-19 PCR Test Home Collection Kit is a RT-PCR test that is designed to determine active infection of SARS-CoV-2. Many destinations require negative PCR results within a specific timeframe. We recommend that you reach out to your destination’s government for their specific requirements and timelines before making your purchase. Some destinations may not accept test results from self-collected samples.

How many kits can I purchase at once? 

You can purchase up to 10 kits at one time by adjusting the quantity in your cart if you are paying out of pocket. Each kit is shipped individually and should be returned in the packaging included in each kit.

Customers filing with insurance can only order one kit at a time.
