Marriott International launches optional Covid-19 testing service for meetings and events

Marriott International is piloting an optional health package at its’ Gaylord Hotel properties in FL, TN, TX, and CO as part of the brand’s ‘Connect with Confidence’ program.  Starting in January of 2021, meeting planners organizing events at the above hotel locations will be able to select from a range of health measures including:

  • Self-administered Covid-19 tests taken by the guest prior to travel
  • Covid-19 testing administered by a third-party testing provider on site at the hotel
  • Daily and/or pre-arrival health screening questions via a dedicated mobile application
  • Daily temperature checks to enter the event area

These measures are in addition to the standards set earlier in 2020 by the Marriott Global Cleanliness Council. Marriott International plans to roll out the program at additional hotel chains later in 2021.
