On-site COVID-19 test for travelers available

Memphis International Airport has partnered with ZüpMed, a local concierge medical clinic to open an on-site COVID-19 testing and services location in the B ticketing lobby across from the Southwest Airlines and American Airlines counters. Designed to provide fliers with immediate access to COVID testing and travel guidance during the pandemic, the new project is called Travelers Health Services. The site will be open seven days a week from 6 am-3 pm. Hours may be adjusted based on passenger traffic.

NOTE: ZupMed will close its MEM location after July 1, 2022.
