Traveling to Disney World can present a certain set of challenges due to the current global pandemic.
At present, the CDC is recommending that anyone considering travel get a COVID-19 test before their trip. This also comes with challenges as many testing sites are generally booked up for days or have extensively long lines.
However, you can now order COVID-19 tests online through Walmart and Sam’s Club. First, though, you will need to take an online health assessment — this is necessary to get a doctor’s order to take the test. The test kit will be shipped directly to your home, where you’ll do either a nasal swab or spit into a tube. You’ll receive results by email about 24 to 48 hours after the lab receives your sample.
These at-home tests are not approved by the FDA but they do have emergency-use authorization by the organization. However, if you are experiencing breathing difficulties or other COVID-19 symptoms, seek emergency medical attention. Standard kits include free 2-day shipping. There are several options available, including the COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test.
Standard kits include free 2-day shipping. This test is $99.
You can also get the COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test with Express Shipping for $110.
This includes free overnight shipping so that you can get your test results faster, if needed.
For those who prefer a saliva test, which is less intrusive than the traditional nasal swab, there is a COVID-19 Saliva Test that involves spitting into a tube for lab analysis.
This test is $99 and results are received online 24-48 hours after a lab receives the sample.
The saliva test also has an express shipping option. The COVID-19 Saliva Test with Express Shipping is $110.
This costs includes overnight shipping so that test results are received faster.
For those who need a test before returning home from a trip to Orlando, you can now get tested at Disney World — we outlined how here. Rapid testing might soon become an option at Orlando International Airport, too.
If you are starting to research possible ways of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, CNBC has reported that Walmart is preparing to administer the vaccine, once approved, across their 5,000 stores and Sam’s Club pharmacies. The big box store is currently in talks with states across the country “to be able to offer vaccinations at pharmacies or other locations, such as long-term care facilities.”
