San Francisco Travel Association opens a dedicated COVID-19 testing facility at Moscone Center

San Francisco Travel Association, the official destination marketing organization for the City and County of San Francisco opened a dedicated COVID-19 testing facility at Moscone Center to provide visitors, meeting attendees, and residents quick and easy access to affordable testing seven days a week.

Located in the heart of the city, the San Francisco Travel COVID Testing Center provides testing daily from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Testing hours can be expanded based on demand or to cater to attendees of mega-events in the city.

Operated by RokketMed, a certified COVID testing provider, the center offers rapid antigen tests for $40 and rapid PCR tests for $150. Formal documentation for international travel or access to venues requiring proof of a negative COVID test is provided upon request at no additional charge.

“By opening a COVID testing center, we are making it easier for travelers and meeting attendees to get convenient and affordable testing and for international travelers to meet travel requirements to return home,” said Joe D’Alessandro, the president and CEO of San Francisco Travel. “We are focused on driving tourism recovery, and this center helps remove a potential barrier for visitors to San Francisco.”

San Francisco Travel is believed to be the first DMO in the U.S. to provide visitors and city residents access to COVID testing.

“As a company dedicated to removing friction in accessing healthcare, RokketMed is thrilled to be partnering with SF Travel and the City of San Francisco to welcome back visitors and tourists safely. Providing affordable, and easily accessible COVID testing for visitors will set San Francisco apart as a destination,” said Tracy Baldwin, founder and CEO of RokketMed.

The San Francisco COVID Testing Center is located on the ground floor of Moscone Center at 749 Howard Street. Testing takes less than five minutes, and results are texted or emailed; formal supporting documentation for the test result is provided upon request. The rapid antigen test provides results in 10 minutes or less, and the rapid PCR results take 30 minutes. Certified or licensed healthcare professionals will administer tests.
