Recognizing that many U.S. travelers and executives are looking for ways to safely bring loved ones and team members back together, Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa announces the introduction of onsite rapid COVID-19 testing for groups. Hilton Sandestin’s new onsite testing will work as the first step in rebuilding what the future of meetings, events, family reunions, weddings and group gatherings in general will look like in this new travel climate. Currently recommended by the American Hotel and Lodging Association and part of Hilton’s CleanStay Program, the resort has enhanced cleaning measures and social distancing protocols in place. The new rapid PCR and antigen testing options are now available as an add-on to the group experience. Both testing options provide results in 15 minutes or less.
Onsite testing will be provided by FastLabs, who will work directly with groups to create a customized testing program for each based on size, activities, and needs. With more than 20 years of experience in providing effective diagnostic testing solutions, FastLabs only uses FDA-authorized PCR, antigen, and antibody tests, all with results in minutes and administered by trained technicians. The company will also offer supporting preventative services for groups that opt-in to its CleanZone program; services include custom COVID screenings, temperature checks with mask verifications, and safe hypochlorous acid misters (a deep sanitization method to create a safe environment).
