Travelers Health Services: COVID-19 Testing at Memphis Airport

The clinic site is designed to give you immediate access to COVID testing and travel guidance before your flight.

MEMPHIS, Tennessee — If you’re on your way to a flight but need COVID-19 guidance at the airport, Memphis International has it for you now.

The airport has partnered with ZüpMed to open Travelers Health Services, an onsite COVID testing and service site. It can be found in the B-ticketing lobby opposite the Southwest Airlines and American Airlines counters.

The clinic’s site is designed to provide you with immediate access to COVID testing and travel guidance. It is open seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. (These hours are subject to change based on passenger traffic.)

The site will provide both molecular and antigen “rapid” tests. It also serves as a collection point for PCR assays that will be processed at a nearby partner lab.

“For the foreseeable future, COVID-19 will continue to affect air traffic,” Scott Brockman, president and CEO of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority, said in a statement. “We believe this is an important service to have on-site and available to passengers.”

“As long as there is COVID, there will be a need for testing, vaccination and counseling,” said Shannon Finks, CEO of ZüpMed. “We look forward to a long-term partnership with Memphis International Airport to help travelers get to their destinations safely and more easily.”

The site doesn’t just help with COVID needs. The staff can also monitor minor medical issues, offer remedies for seasickness, or replace common prescription medications you may have left behind at home.
