Mount Sinai COVID-19 Saliva Test
Many of us are eager to get back to the activities we love. The Mount Sinai Health System is an official partner of the New York State Excelsior Pass program—a new effort to fast-track the opening of theaters, stadiums, and other businesses. The Mount Sinai COVID-19 PCR Saliva Test utilizes state-of-the-art technology and enables you to meet the New York State guidelines, which require a PCR test within 72 hours to attend large-scale entertainment and sporting events or proof of vaccination.
Results of our test are guaranteed within 48 hours. And getting a test at a Mount Sinai testing location is safe, easy and convenient. Choose from one of four locations in Manhattan. Samples are assessed within our own laboratory, ensuring a robust test of the highest quality and accuracy. The results are then transmitted securely to the Excelsior Pass app on your phone. Simply show your digital pass on your phone, which can then gain you admittance into an event.
The Mount Sinai COVID-19 Saliva Test can also be used for business or leisure travel purposes, or return to work authorization. It can also be administered to young children. If a saliva sample cannot be obtained, or if someone has eaten or drank something prior to the test, a nasal swab test can be performed instead.
The cost for the test is $139.50 and is not covered by insurance. Credit cards are accepted at the time of your test. Simply book an appointment at one of the locations below.
