Beginning Jan. 26, 2021, Seven Stars Resort & Spa, Grace Bay Beach, Turks & Caicos will offer complimentary rapid antigen testing for guests. The service in accordance with recently issued CDC guidelines requiring U.S. residents traveling internationally to show a negative COVID-19 test result before boarding their flights home.
To be performed in-room by a certified lab technician, the tests are being made available to all guests over the age of two. The resort says the process will be “simple and easy’’ for guests.
The complimentary COVID-19 antigen test will be scheduled upon guest check-in. Per CDC guidelines, tests are to be conducted 24-72 hours prior to departure. Once tested, guests will receive their results within an hour. If the guest’s home state or country requires a PCR test, Seven Stars Resort & Spa will apply a $50 resort credit towards the $185 cost (per person). PCR test results will be returned within 24 hours.
