Currently approved trusted testing partners are: CVS and Kaiser Permanente. Trusted testing partners are entities that understand exactly what the State requires in terms of this program. Additionally, the state will accept test results from other sources so long as they meet the testing parameters set forth by the DOH, which are an FDA-approved NAAT test processed by a CLIA certified lab.
Whether through CVS, Kaiser or another source, it is the traveler’s responsibility to confirm they are receiving the correct test.
