Health and wellness company XpresSpa Group has opened XpresCheck, a Covid-19 testing centre at Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) in the US.

The new pop-up facility is located within the existing XpresSpa at Concourse A, accessible only after security clearance.

With four separate testing rooms, the facility has the capacity to conduct more than 300 tests per day.

The centre will provide both rapid molecular Covid-19 tests, as well as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.

These services can be accessed not only by all airline passengers but also airport employees, including airline employees, concessionaires and their employees, contractors and workers.

TSA officers and US Customs and Border Protection (CPB) agents can also get tested at the XpresCheck Covid-19 testing centre.

The company stated that all insurance plans will be acknowledged outside of the network. It also assured that all information will remain private and comply with HIPAA.

XpresSpa CEO Doug Satzman said: “We are thrilled to be opening XpresCheck today at Salt Lake City International Airport. Given the rising number of Covid-19 cases around the country, we believe providing this added layer of safety and comfort will be beneficial to passengers and airline employees alike as demand for travel continues to increase.”

In November, XpresSpa Group, along with City of Phoenix Aviation Department, opened an XpresCheck Covid-19 testing centre at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona, the US.

A closed, urgent care medical clinic was transformed into an XpresCheck Testing Facility.

With an estimated capacity to administer more than 400 tests a day, the facility hosts six separate testing rooms.
