Olbia, March 31 2021, In the presence of the Minister of Tourism Massimo Garavaglia, Geasar S.p.A. and Mater Olbia Hospital
this morning inaugurated the Health Testing Center - HTC
, the first airport hub in Italy completely dedicated to the health screening and prevention service in the fight against Covid 19.
The inauguration ceremony took place inside the terminal dedicated to screening, in a COVID free context.
All participants were in fact subjected to a quick antigenic swab before entry and all the health measures required to contain the SARS Cov 2 epidemic were respected.
The HTC project sees the collaboration between two companies united by a mission focused on developing the potential of the territory: the Mater Olbia Hospital, a center of excellence in the regional health sector and Geasar Spa, the management company of the Olbia airport, main entrance door for tourism in Sardinia.
A 500mq facility adjacent to the commercial aviation terminal was dedicated to the Health Testing Center - HTC - and is sized to process over 1500 tests per day between molecular and third generation antigenic swabs.
The service was conceived as an effective tool to facilitate the resumption of air traffic and local tourist flows, in line with international trends that see the need to make air travel subject to carrying out an anticovid test before departure.
The Testing Center is open to everyone, anyone who wishes can take the test, foreign residents and tourists who need a negative test to be able to return to their countries of origin in accordance with the provisions in force.
Accessing the service is very simple, the reservation is also made online via smartphone. Once the booking has been completed and payment has been made, the system generates a booking ticket which must be shown on the day of the test, together with a valid identity document.
The result of the molecular tests will arrive in a maximum of 24 hours, while for the antigen test the result is available in about 30 minutes.
The tests can be purchased online on the website www.htcolbia.it
