Free Rapid PCR Testing at The Utility Expo
The Utility Expo has partnered with Wild Health to provide free COVID-19 rapid PCR testing to any attendee or exhibitor who wishes to be tested prior to traveling home.
Rapid PCR tests give results in under 24 hours, however, 1% of tests take longer than 24 hours. We encourage anyone flying out to get their test at least 24 hours before their flight is scheduled.
Testing will be available daily from noon to 3:30 pm in room C101 in the South Lobby.

U.S. visa applications are still subject to a greater degree of scrutiny than in the past. We encourage all international exhibitors and attendees to act early and contact the U.S. Embassy nearest them. The visa application process should be initiated well in advance of the planned travel date and no later than three months prior to the show.
For more information on obtaining a visa, please visit the U.S. Department of State website.
