Haztech To Pilot On-Site COVID Testing At YQR
Today James Bogusz, President and CEO of the Regina Airport Authority, announced that Haztech will begin a pilot project by offering private on-site COVID testing at the airport.
Starting Wednesday morning, the Haztech Mobile unit will provide drop-in and pre-booked COVID testing for departing and arriving passengers during airline operating hours for a fee paid directly by travellers.
“We are excited to be working with Haztech to deliver a new option for COVID testing service to the travelling public,” said Bogusz. “We believe that on-site rapid testing is one of the keys to creating additional consumer confidence and eventually restarting non-essential travel as we wait for further vaccinations to take place in our community.”
The Haztech testing services will include a variety of SHA and Health Canada approved COVID tests, including RT-PCR (Molecular) tests, rapid antigen tests and rapid antibody tests, all of which have fast turnaround times.
“Ensuring the safety of people is our primary goal,” said Haztech CEO, Shawn Hazen. “Giving people the option to choose the test they need when and where they want it with ease of access also increases public safety. Our overarching goal is to safely accelerate economic benefits for the local business community and travelers.”
Haztech will be charging a fee directly to customers for on-site testing. To book or learn more information about the Haztech Mobile Unit, visit https://haztech.com/covid19-screening/
