Covid 19 test

We will be arriving in a few weeks and I know all about the travel portal and what needs to be completed, but I am curious where people are getting their Covid 19 tests done before they leave the states to enter the USVI? Are people using Quest Diagnostics, Pharmacies, Urgent cares, etc? And has anyone ran into any issues with receiving their results in time?

We want to get a test that has results within 48 hrs and really no more than 72. I don't want any issues when that week comes. On the other hand, we are all excited about visiting, even though I hear it is a hopping place right now. Have fun fellow travelers. Thank you!

If you google "Covid testing Holland NY" you'll find all the options available to you in your area and can follow up from there. Visitors have been using a wide assortment of tests and testing sites all over the country and as long as the tests are acceptable to the Travel Portal (and that information is on the site) there's no problem.

I had my doctor place the order for my test and used the hospital lab - it took about 58 hours to get the results in MYCHART which I immediately uploaded to the portal and it took 50 hours total to receive the green check mark. I did end up emailing the portal because we were leaving for the airport at 2:00 AM on a Tuesday morning and as of 4:00 PM Monday. I still had not received - within 10 minutes I got my email. Some people are getting faster responses. We traveled on March 16th (blood draw was Thursday morning 8:00 AM, results received Saturday evening on MYCHART, uploaded Saturday evening - around 7:45 PM and got our green check mark around 4:20 PM Monday - we were traveling Tuesday morning)
