Ontario International Airport (ONT) late this month opened a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site as it readies for an influx in passengers during this key holiday travel season.

Testing is available in parking lot 3 between terminals 2 and 4 daily and will be administered by Covid Clinic, a Southern California-based non-profit which operates testing sites in California and Arizona.

Rapid tests with results available in as few as 20 minutes are among a variety of antigen and antibody tests offered. Rapid test specimens are processed on-site while others are sent to local third-party laboratories with results generally reported in two to four days.

“The availability of COVID-19 testing adds a new level of service and convenience to the Ontario airport experience,” said Mark Thorpe, chief executive officer of the Ontario International Airport Authority. “It is our hope that on-site testing administered in the comfort of a passenger vehicle will provide peace of mind to our customers, guests and airport employees, as well as any of our neighbors who want to be tested.”

ONT has recorded six straight months of traffic growth since reaching its low point in April when passenger levels declined by 93 percent.

Ontario’s recovery ranks first among airports in California and third nationally, having regained roughly 50 percent of passenger volume compared to a year ago.
