Sands China deploys 2,400 employees during mass testing drives

Sands China has deployed over 2,400 Sands China team members, including Sands Cares Ambassadors, who took shifts around the clock during the second and third community-wide mandatory nucleic acid testing (NAT) drives.
These employees offered 24-hour onsite assistance for a total of five days to those getting tested during Macau’s two consecutive testing drives, which began at 3 p.m. on September 25 and at 9 p.m. on October 4, respectively.
According to a statement issued by the gaming operator, they also volunteered to assist with the operation of the testing station at the Tap Seac Multisport Pavilion, and offered support to those needing special assistance at the two testing stations.
At its peak, the firm said that there were 28 testing booths in operation at The Venetian’s station – including four dedicated lanes for community members needing special assistance. Around 65,000 tests were conducted at Cotai Expo during the two NAT drives.
“At this critical moment in the Covid-19 fight, it is our duty to assist in the citywide NAT drives with a testing site at Cotai Expo, so that we can help the government complete the testing as soon as possible,” said Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd.”
The gaming operator offered Cotai Expo Halls A, B and C as a 24-hour testing station during the mass testing.
Sands China is providing a total of 4,000 rooms at the Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel under the “medical observation hotel” initiative. After initially offering 2,000 rooms, the company has, since October 5, 2021, reserved an additional 2,000 rooms for medical observation purposes.
This is the seventh time that the Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel has been utilised as a medication observation hotel since March 2020.
