SXSW Covid-19 Testing Centers

Located in EH2 at the Austin Convention Center, the SXSW Testing Center will provide no out-of-pocket cost COVID-19 testing supplied by Nomi Health to any participant of SXSW and SXSW EDU, March 6-19. In addition to the main testing site, pop-up locations will be available at the Wellness Expo at Palmer Events Center, March 10-14, and the Outdoor Stage at Lady Bird Lake at 900 W Riverside Drive, March 13-19.

TYPES OF TESTS PROVIDED

Rapid Antigen: Tests performed in the SXSW Testing Center or pop-up locations will be processed immediately and results provided in less than 1 hour by text and email.

PCR: Results from a PCR test, valid for travel, will be provided within 24-48 hours by text and email.

TESTING REGISTRATION

A short registration form is required to test. Pre-registration is highly encouraged to speed up the process. Visit https://nomihealth.com/resources/sxsw for more information and to pre-register.

SXSW Participants can also register with their phone upon arrival at the testing locations, by scanning the QR code on the Nomi Health signage, before approaching the testers.

No appointment is needed. The process for testing is simple and quick. Once the online registration form is completed and the attendee is checked in, they will be directed to a private space to be swabbed. Registration only needs to be completed once regardless of the number of times the person wishes to test.

WHO CAN TEST

Testing is available for ALL SXSW Participants, both credentialed and non-credentialed. This includes registrants, wristband holders, and public attending free SXSW events.
