Bethesda conducts Pre-Event ART Testing for church services, weddings, conferences, live performances, meetings, sports events and other events.

Pre-event testing is necessary to reduce risks of positive Covid-19 cases at events so that more activities can resume safely.  Participants going for such events will need undergo COVID-19 tests no earlier than 24 hours before the end of the event.  Antigen Rapid Test results can be available within 20 minutes.

Depending on the test kits used, ART swabs can be conducted either via nasopharyngeal swabs or mid-turbinate swabs. Our ART tests are usually done via mid-turbinate nasal swab which is from the lower part of the nose and is more comfortable.

  • Negative results – you may proceed for your event.  Please show this message to your event organizer to be admitted to the event.  Negative result is valid for 24 hours.
  • Invalid result – you may need to repeat the ART test
  • Positive result – you will be denied entry to the event and will need to have a PCR test done.  Further instruction will be given to you then.  You will also need to self isolate until the result of the PCR test is out.
