Onsiteable named one of seven on-site testing providers for live events by Northwest Star Meetings Group
As large, in-person events once again fill our calendars, organizers are looking for ways to mitigate the risk of Covid-19 infection. One of the highest-percentage ways to hold safe meetings is to test everyone, regardless of vaccination status. Here are seven companies that offer on-site testing at events.
After handling the prefight testing of UFC athletes in May 2020, ProAm Sports Medicine’s OnSiteAble began testing attendees at events nationwide. PCR tests are available, although they will typically do rapid antigen for events with more than 1,000 people to get results in 15 minutes.
“The people are able to preregister before they even show up to the event so once they show up, they’re in our system already,” said James Murphy, founder and CEO of ProAm Sports Medicine. “We test them and then the result is sent right to their mobile device.”
OnSiteAble has been used at events like Miss Universe in 2021, which hosted 3,000 attendees. The program had also been slated for use at pop star Adele’s residency in Las Vegas, which anticipated 6,000 people per night. (Adele postponed that residency during the height of the Omicron surge and new dates have yet to be confirmed.)
