Covid test upload to safe travels question
Save

I contacted Hawaii Safe Travels yesterday but haven’t heard back. We received our approved negative Covid test at Walgreens yesterday (ID now). I uploaded the wrong pdf initially. The correct one is now uploaded and shows “Covid negative”. There doesn’t appear to be away to delete the incorrect one that is showing an error?

Yes, hardcopies are ready to go! Thanks everyone for the feedback and clarification! Walgreen’s ID Now test is definitely the way to go if you have it as an option. Results only took 45 minutes to come back, was free.

This is good to know about! So insurance covered it?

I just posted a topic along about covid test recommendations, I’ll look into this!

LAcameron29, what did you mean you uploaded the wrong PDF? Can you please explain? We are traveling to Kauai soon and I’m stressing about this test result thing. It’s just nuts. Thank you!

With Walgreens, when you get your results, there were two different PDFs in the email. One was just saying “negative” and had my name on it but no other patient identifiers or time stamp. The other pdf had the time stamp and additional patient identifiers on it. I was uploading from my little screen on my phone so I didn’t initially notice there were two PDFs to choose from. When I uploaded the wrong one, it said “Not approved, date of test error”. You want it to day “Covid negative” after you upload it.
