XpresSpa Group announced it will begin to offer rapid coronavirus tests at both John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International airports starting on October 7.

The company will use the Abbott ID Now test, a rapid molecular point-of-care test that delivers results within 13 minutes.

“We believe rapid COVID-19 testing at airports can play a major role in slowing the virus spread and decreasing the risk of new community outbreaks linked to travel,” said the company’s CEO, Doug Satzman, in a statement.

Other forms of testing are already available at the company’s locations including the Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR test.
