Fast Fit2Fly COVID testing is now available at Health Center Bon Bida.
Testing capacity for Fit2Fly tests is increased.
Starting in January, Health Center Bon Bida Bonaire was the first to make COVID testing possible on Bonaire. Although the testing center starting with a low capacity, it was very quickly scaled up to meet the demand of the local community, guests of the hotels and resorts, as well as other visitors who required testing prior to flying back to their home country.
Because of the collaboration with accredited labs in both Aruba and Curacao, over 1000 people were assisted with providing the necessary travel documents to fly. Without this testing, Bonaire residents or visitors could not travel for work, family visits, or relaxation.
With new processing machines, the labwork for testing can now be done right here on Bonaire.
In order to increase needed capacity, make the testing process more efficient, and deliver faster results, Health Center Bon Bida has invested in new PCR processing machines, so that the lab work can be done locally here on Bonaire. This results in lower costs, faster processing time, and adjusted, more economical pricing.
Without the need to send tests off-island for processing, Fit2Fly tests are now more economical.
Beginning tomorrow, April 1st, 2021, Health Center Bon Bida will offer the following testing:
- PCR (NAAT) test–USD $125.00 per person.
- An Antigen rapid test–USD $65.00 per person.
- Combination PCR + Antigen test–USD $170.00 per person.
