With Barbados’ travel protocols requiring a COVID-19 PCR test to end hotel quarantine, The Crane Resort has opened its own on-site COVID-19 testing laboratory to offer reliable and timely test results to its members and guests. The lab is part of the resort’s mission to help recharge the tourism industry in Barbados in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.

Designed in close collaboration with officials from Barbados’ Public Health Laboratory, the lab was developed following WHO guidelines for the establishment of PCR testing facilities in developing states, in accordance with Level II best practices.

Barbados Covid Lab offers guests the ability to seamlessly make an online appointment to be swabbed by on-site medical professionals with PCR test results delivered, digitally and securely, within 24 hours. The lab will also offer guests COVID-19 antigen tests to reenter their home countries, with results available within 15 minutes.
