BOSTON (AP) — Boston’s Logan Airport has its first coronavirus testing site.

The site that opened Wednesday is in Terminal E and is operated by health and wellness company XpresSpa Group.

It will be for airport and airline employees at first but will start testing travelers in mid-November.

The facility will offer a quick test that returns results within 15 minutes; a nasal swab test; and a blood antibody test.

It will be able to process about 400 tests a day.

The company already operates coronavirus testing facilities at Kennedy International Airport in New York and Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.
