LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SG Blocks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“SG Blocks” or the “Company”), a leading designer, innovator and fabricator of container-based structures, announced today that its Clarity Mobile Venture (“CMV”) partnership with Clarity Lab Solutions will be implementing an interim COVID-19 testing solution at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in which PCR tests with results available within 24 hours will be accessible, in addition to other rapid coronavirus tests.
“During this pandemic we understand just how crucial testing is, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide this service to passengers and employees alike at LAX, one of the largest airports and gateways of travel in the United States,” Paul Galvin, CEO and Chairman of SG Blocks noted. “We are very pleased to leverage SG Blocks’ technology and resources to provide a safer, more secure environment for traveling in 2020.”
Testing locations will include the Tom Bradley International Terminal, Terminal 2, and Terminal 6. Test collection will be available between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., 7 days a week. Tests will cost $150 dollars and payment will be collected through a personal mobile device or tablet.
Clarity Mobile Ventures will be providing the PCR tests to passengers and employees with the testing expected to commence this week. Following this endeavor, LAX plans to open a full capacity, on-site rapid COVID-19 test laboratory in December across from Terminal 6. SG Blocks will serve as developers and Grimshaw Architects will serve as designers of the test site, with Clarity Lab Solutions being the primary operator of the facility. The full-service laboratory will offer both the PCR test as well as a rapid antigen test, with results available in just a few hours.
