Yes, and AFAIK.

Call Refuah, their turnaround time is fantastic.

Thanks! Did the results they sent you state "PCR" explicity on them. I've heard the Maldives department of health is strick on making sure the results for states it explicitly.

In a similar situation and could use guidance - I am traveling to the Maldives in a few weeks and they required a negative PCR test within 96 hours from departure from the US. Is the Abbott ID Now a PCR test (are all molecular tests PCR)? Does anyone have experience with other places that can guarentee PCR test results within 96 hours (preferably in North Jersey or Rockland County)?

If Brooklyn works for you, I took a PCR test on Monday (16th) and got my results today.
They originally promised to have the results by tomorrow AM latest, so that's a guarantee of less than 72 hours.

Tell them you want a PCR test and need results by X.
They have a dedicated covid testing area so it should take less than 5 min in and out- don't get spooked if the waiting room is full because these people are in line for the doc.
