COVID Testing at Your Event: The Only Way to Be Sure and Secure

COVID Clear Services has launched a new COVID testing program that includes a Rapid Test, producing results in just 10 minutes and a PCR test, producing results in only 24 hours, for special events and parties, weddings and bar mitzvahs.

Says Louise Weadock, founder of ACCESS Nursing Services and COVID Clear Services, “We want to help families and friends celebrate together once again with a BIG PARTY! My mantra is ‘Don’t Be Fearful, Just Be Careful’ and that’s what we’re aiming for with our COVID Clear testing program. Anyone’s “party vision” can now become a reality.”

 COVID Clear Services has procured FDA and EUA approved COVID19 RAPID and PCR screening tests. The COVID Clearing process follows all CDC Guidelines for Coronavirus Screening Testing, Tracking and Tracing protocols.

 As the U.S. nears its one-year pandemic milestone, many states are beginning to lift bans on large events and gatherings. Starting on March 15, Governor Andrew Cuomo will allow New Yorkers to host events at limited capacities. According to the current plan, events and weddings are limited to 50% of the venue capacity or up to 150 people.


“All guests must be tested ahead of time and the event must be approved by the local health department,” explains Governor Cuomo.

 The following are the steps you need to take to hold a successful event or party during the “new normal”:


  • Testing Before the Event: Order tests before your event to ensure that all guests are negative before entering the venue and before they interact with your other guests. Rapid testing results are produced in approximately 10 minutes, while PCR testing can show results within 24 hours. COVID Clear also offers a curbside testing service on the day of the event.


  • On-Site Clinicians: You and your guests can either self-administer the test or have an on-site clinician at your event or sent to the home of a pre-registered guest to conduct the COVID-19 test. This will ensure that the results are accurate and can be returned as quickly as possible.


  • Keep it Organized! Whatever you do, don’t rely on your guests to schedule their own COVID tests. There is no guarantee that they’ll be able to get an appointment or get the test results back before the event. Scheduling COVID testing for your event through a reputable company, like COVID Clear, will ensure that all pre-registered guests are negative and that your other guests can remain safe from any risk of virus spread.
