Accor Hotels
is rolling out COVID-19 testing kits at
their hotels across the U.S. and Canada. These kits will be available
for purchase at the hotel which does make it ideal if you require a
negative test to return home (wherever that it is!) Here are the
details provided to us by Accor:

Starting this month, guests can purchase PreCheck PCR testing
kits by x.labs at all Accor- managed hotels in the U.S. and Canada.
PreCheck kits combine the latest in smart tech and digital healthcare
with an in-app wellness and symptom survey, FDA-approved Bluetooth smart
thermometer and FDA-authorized COVID-19 self-collection diagnostic PCR
test that provides results in as little as 24-48 hours.
