Plan ahead. Order your test right away to ensure you have it in time for the day you plan on testing. We advise that you order your test at least one week before you plan on taking it.
Travel during major holidays to locations that have results timing restrictions (like Hawaii) will need to be carefully planned. There are two primary issues that cannot be mitigated:
- FedEx does not operate on major holidays like Christmas or New Years Day – (which also strains their logistics for the day after due to their additional workloads) – see https://www.fedex.com/content/dam/fedex/us-united-states/services/HolidaySchedule.pdf and this https://www.fedex.com/en-us/service-alerts.html for reference.
- The lab’s staff is at minimum operating capacity on major holidays.
It is highly recommended that travelers opt for arrival dates that fall outside a 3 day window after any major holiday and eliminate this problem.
