Health Alert:  Availability of COVID-19 Tests and Results


Location:  Philippines

 Event:  Availability of COVID-19 antigen and RT-PCR tests may be limited, and test results may be delayed, because of an increase in demand for COVID-19 testing.   

 Testing capacity and the ability to provide timely results prior to travel may be constrained in certain locations in the Philippines.  U.S. citizens may experience delays in scheduling COVID-19 antigen and RT-PCR tests, as well as delays in delivery of results from these tests, due to a recent significant increase in demand for COVID-19 testing.  These delays, which have occurred in other countries during spikes in COVID-19 infections, could continue for the next two to four weeks.
