Oakland International Airport (OAK) this week began offering free, rapid-result COVID-19 tests to employees and the public through a collaboration with CityHealth Urgent Care.

Testing will be available by appointment daily at the North Field terminal complex to those presenting a current official OAK security credential as well as any member of the public, including those looking to fly to Hawaii. The results are shared on the spot or online via the CityHealth Urgent Care secure portal.

“The expansion of the airport testing program reflects our commitment to the health and well-being of both airport employees and OAK travelers,” said Bryant Francis, Port of Oakland director of aviation. “Thanks to this partnership with CityHealth Urgent Care, OAK employees – who interact with each other, airline customers and those at home – can come to work with greater peace of mind.”

OAK noted the State of Hawaii Pre-Travel Testing Program is scheduled to begin next week, requiring travelers looking for an exemption from the 14-day mandatory quarantine provide written confirmation of a negative test result within 72 hours from the final leg of departure.

CityHealth and Oakland International Airport will offer pre-travel testing to Hawaii travelers at no out-of-pocket cost and invite those planning travel to the Hawaiian Islands use the planned in-terminal testing facility to meet the State of Hawaii requirement.
