The COVID-19 vaccine is still months away for most of us. Until you are able to get vaccinated, getting tested is the most important way to know if you are healthy and keep others around you safe. And thanks to a new healthcare start-up called “15 Minute Testing” in South Philadelphia, you don't have to wait in long lines to get tested.

The 15-Minute Testing procedure is a nasal swab test that is self-administered. CLIA Lab results are then provided to you confidentially via text or email by highly-trained healthcare professionals within just 15 minutes—without ever having to leave the car. A smart phone is required to receive the result.

Anyone can get this rapid result test in a safe, secure, convenient drive-thru location at:

IATSE Local 8 Stagehands Parking Lot
