(CMR) The Health Services Authority (HSA) has extended the hours of the COVID-19 testing clinic at the Cayman Islands Hospital. The clinic will be opened Mondays to Fridays from 7:30 am to 11 am, and on Sundays, 10 am to 12 pm (prior to Tuesday flights only).
The online appointment booking calendar is available for the public to schedule their free COVID-19 test with results delivered by secure email within 24 hours directly to the patient. Appointments must be made (2) two business days in advance as all persons being tested must be pre-registered (no walk-ins).
All persons tested will receive results via email within approximately 24 hours. As an added benefit, all persons being tested are also enrolled in the free MyHSA Patient Portal, which provides 24-hour secure access to your health information as well as other convenient features.
Travelers are reminded to check the requirements of the country they are traveling to, including the required time frame for a negative PCR COVID-19 test (usually testing 72 hours prior to travel), and book their appointment within the required timeframe.
