Both rapid antigen tests, which give results in 15, and molecular PCR tests, which give results in 24-48 hours, will be available. You don’t need to have COVID-19 symptoms to get tested.

Since TACKL Health doesn’t accept health insurance, the cost for the tests will be $75 for rapid antigen, $125 for the molecular PCR or $160 for both.

The Ford Airport said it’s one of the first airports in the nation to host a COVID-19 testing site.
