StageZero Life Sciences Announces Initiation of Testing for Travel to China
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 2, 2020 / StageZero Life Sciences, Ltd. (TSX:SZLS) ("StageZero" or the "Company") announced today that it has initiated COVID-19 testing for travel to China with its partners in Canada.
China requires both PCR and IgM testing 72 hours prior to travel into the country. The testing is currently offered in Calgary and will be expanding into Ontario and British Columbia. This is the most recent significant travel related initiative that the Company has partnered on. The first was a large global travel group, subsequent partnerships include the Government of Barbados (announced November 13, 2020) and the state of Hawaii.
"Not only does testing prior to travel help reduce the strain on a nation's healthcare system, it allows travelers to enjoy an element of normal life once they arrive, if their destination is COVID-19 free." said James Howard-Tripp, Chairman and CEO of StageZero Life Sciences.
In addition to new partnerships, the Company is pleased to announce an extension and expansion of testing services to the County in Arizona that it has been servicing since early in 2020. Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the county is increasing both testing sites and access to testing. Further, testing has been extended to the judicial department and jurors. StageZero will be providing these services into 2021.
The Company will schedule an analyst update call next week on the recently released Q3 Financials and will also provide an update on Aristotle. Further details will be released.
The Company's financial statements and management discussion and analysis are available on www.sedar.com.
