Free Covid-19 Antigen Tests

In partnership with the South Dakota Department of Health, over 3,000 free COVID-19 Antigen home tests will be distributed at Rapid City Regional Airport. One test per incoming passenger will be available at ticket counter 6 or post-security at the Rushmore Memories Gift Shop.

These antigen rapid tests can be done at home in as little as 15 minutes. Passengers will be provided a step-by-step instruction guide to

complete testing. Those with a positive test result are encouraged to follow the CDC’s isolation guidance.

Antigen tests do not meet testing requirements for international travel. For international flights, travelers must verify the type of test

required for each trip with their airline and destination country.

Masks are no longer required in the airport, however airlines may still require a face covering to fly. Please contact your carrier for additional information.

Proof of vaccination is not currently required for domestic travel to Rapid City Regional Airport.

There are currently no quarantine requirements in South Dakota for inbound travelers.

We encourage all airport users to practice personal responsibility and social distancing while visiting the Rapid City Regional Airport (RAP).
