Below are the 4 simple steps regarding Antigen Rapid Test (ART) for PET procedure before attending selected events in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
Step 1 - Registration
When you have arrived at the venue of your event, collect your ART Registration Form.
Complete your registration.
Step 2 - Swab Test
After registration, you will be directed to the swabbing stations where a respective swabber has been assigned to you.
Pay attention to the instructions given by the swabber.
Pull down your mask, only exposing your nose for the swabber to insert the swab into each of your nostrils.
Alternatively, you may do your PET ahead of time at the clinic providing ART, up to 24 hours before the end of your event.
Step 3 - Wait for your results
You might be directed to a holding room depending on the organiser’s request.
It will take about 15 - 20 minutes for your results to be out.
Step 4 - Receive your results
If your result is ART-positive or invalid, you are required to go for a PCR test at the event site or at a clinic that offers PCR swabs.
If you are ART-negative, you may proceed to present your QR code showing your results to participate in your event.
Stay safe and enjoy your show!
