Expected to Commence Operations by mid-December
DENVER, Dec. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: XSPA) (“XpresSpa” or the “Company”), a health and wellness company, today announced that it has begun construction of an XpresCheck™ COVID-19 testing facility at Denver International Airport that is expected to be fully operational by mid-December.
XpresCheck is currently building a pop-up facility in the now closed Brookstone location at Concourse B, post-security. This facility will host six separate testing rooms with an anticipated capacity to administer over 400 tests per day. COVID-19 testing options will include the Rapid Molecular COVID-19 Test and the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test.
Doug Satzman, XpresSpa CEO, stated, "As cases continue to rise in Colorado and throughout the country, we are pleased to launch XpresCheck at Denver International Airport, which will be our first pop-up location and fifth COVID-19 testing facility across the country. This new pop-up building methodology will enable us to accelerate our rollout to additional airports at a lower cost than our original modular constructed facilities at JFK, Newark, and Logan airports. While our current focus is providing convenient, reliable COVID-19 testing and related medical services, our long-term goal is to become the leading provider in the travel, health and wellness category by helping people manage medical conditions as they pass through the largest U.S. airports.”
