The Company had previously announced on November 18, 2020 that its joint venture partnership Clarity Mobile Venture had signed an agreement to provide coronavirus tests for passengers and employees at LAX. The testing facility is expected to open in early December 2020 and will be located a five-minute walk from the main terminal at LAX.
