HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 22 July 2020 –
As part of Dorsett Hospitality
ongoing commitment to the local community under
#DorsettCares, the Hong Kong-based hospitality group is the first hotel group
to partner with leading global genetic testing and digital health company
Prenetics to offer the local community, associates and hotels guests in Hong
Kong a peace of mind with 24/7 access to the Project Screen by Circle COVID-19
test, recommended by the World Health Organisation and officially recognised by
the Hong Kong government, as we collectively fight to contain the city’s third

Hong Kong-based Prenetics
is one of three laboratories who have been assigned by the government to help
with mass community testing. Their ‘Do-It-Yourself’ test kit has an analytical
accuracy of 99.9% based on validated studies by the National Health Commission
and the US FDA. They also provide all the testing for the English Premier
League and have carried out over 40,000 COVID-19 tests for players and coaches
without which the season would not have resumed. The largest private laboratory
in Hong Kong, Prenetics have boosted its capacity up from 5,580 to 22,000 tests
in Hong Kong per day.

Dorsett has test kits
available for purchase at its 9 hotels in Hong Kong for only HK$785* with
results available within just one to two business days. Furthermore, the hotel
group will be sponsoring over 50% off of each COVID-19 test for all their
associates and in some instances, full sponsorships of COVID-19 test kits should
testing be required from any hotel staff to ensure we continue to do everything
we can to make our employees feel safe.

Since the first outbreak
back in February, all nine of Dorsett Hospitality International’s hotels in
Hong Kong — and worldwide — have implemented preventive and anti-epidemic
control measures, including use of hospital-grade Ecolab disinfectant cleaner 2.0,
increased cleaning and disinfection frequency of public areas and facilities
every hour and temperature screening for those coming in and out of the hotels.

To date, Dorsett
Hospitality International has provided accommodation for healthcare workers and
frontliners in London, Hong Kong and China and donated supplies used in
hospitals and quarantine centres in Malaysia. We will continue to support the
communities in each city where we have a presence as part of our #DorsettCares’
commitment to our esteemed associates and guests around the world.
