Additionally, there will be a fee of BDS$100 for the rapid testing of outbound travellers to the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Cash will not be accepted. People will be required to pay using credit or debit cards.

In addition to the new testing facility at the gymnasium, screening for COVID-19 continues daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Branford Taitt Polyclinic, Black Rock; Eunice Gibson Polyclinic in Warrens and Winston Scott Polyclinic, Jemmotts Lane, all in St Michael.
