Viking Star Gets First PCR Laboratory at Sea for COVID Testing

3 Nov 2020

Viking announced that it has completed installation of the first
full-scale PCR laboratory at sea.
This new onboard facility allows for testing capacity in the cruise
industry, enabling Viking to conduct PCR testing of all crew
members and guests with a non-invasive saliva test, the
company said, calling it an industry first.
The lab has enough capacity for daily testing of every crew
member and guest, which provides flexibility to respond to
COVID-19 prevalence levels around the world.
This first lab has been installed on the 930-guest Viking Star; it
will undergo a series of extensive tests to ensure the procedures
and protocols that have been designed are fully effective, the
company said.
