PITTSBURGH, PA (WKBN) – Pittsburgh International Airport offers on-site coronavirus testing.

The tests are now offered at a number of other airports in the United States

According to Blue Sky News, a publication by Pittsburgh International Airport, the test site operated by TACKL Health in Pittsburgh is expected to open on Monday, December 21, behind the security checkpoint in the Airside Terminal.
