A new and quick screen test – reserved for event, festival and party promoters – has been created by British company Swallow Events. Good news for nightclubs, clubs, dance clubs.

This is some news likely to make the reopening of clubs, dance clubs, and nightclubs easier, as the topic is definitely not on the current agenda – as they are considered as “non-necessary” like gyms, restaurants, and bars.

A new and rapid Covid screen test has been launched for the event industry. Designed by British company Swallow Events in partnership with the Roche laboratories. Note the screen test has been already approved by the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.

According to Swallow Events, the test is 99.68% reliable with results delivered in 15 minutes only. Only reserved for event, festival, and party promoters, this new screen test is now available online and to be delivered worldwide. Depending on the amount ordered by customers, the test costs between £8.80 and £13.

Swallow Events Founder and MD Oli Thomas told Access All Areas: “We are trying to keep the cost as low as possible because we really care about the events industry, we want to open it back up in a Covid-secure way and in so doing help to protect more than 570,000 full-time jobs which are rapidly disappearing.”

He went on: “We are in talks with a supplier that is developing a 10-second Covid-19 breath test kit.”
