Delta Air Lines, CVS Health partner to accelerate COVID-19 testing for employees

Delta Air Lines has announced a partnership with CVS Health to accelerate employee COVID-19 testing, the company said.

The rapid-response option for testing flight crews will help build confidence about traveling with Delta. The CVS Health Return Ready testing will be overseen by a CVS Health clinician at Delta hub crew lounges and takes fewer than 15 minutes to diagnose whether the active COVID-19 virus is detected.

The rapid-response nasal-swab test is the newest testing option Delta is providing employees so a baseline understanding of the infection can be established across Delta.
