I don't know the answer to your question, but according to the article, the SXM testing center is located outside the airport terminal near the employee parking lot, and the cost is 110.00.
For me, it would be more convenient to get the test in Anguilla, and pay $100.00
According to Hughes they do Covid antigen rapid testing (below is from their site). Call them.

My daughter and I had to test in SXM airport in December while in transit, and the EHAS team did a great job and were very efficient and professional. ( SXM Swab for pcr tickled my eyeballs, so not necessarily more forgiving that on Anguilla.) If coming from Anguilla best to be tested on Anguilla and know your status before exiting the island, rather than traveling blind to SXM only to find out the test is positive...and then what?
