With little public COVID-19 testing, British Columbians turn to private clinics

News and Article

CVM Medical, a pop-up clinic inside Vancouver International Airport, offers pre-flight rapid COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic travellers for $79.

But ever since the B.C. government restricted public testing to all but a few select groups, more and more symptomatic people have been coming to private travel clinics like CVM Medical to find out if they have COVID-19.

But CEO Graham Williamson’s urging people with symptoms not to book tests at his clinics.

So imagine you’re a traveller headed to Hawaii today and you’re taking your COVID test before your flight, and now you’re standing in line next to somebody who has symptoms. So that’s why we do asymptomatic screening,” said Williamson.
