The testers will then take the swab and enter the name into the Abbott machine, then put the swab in a solution in the machine and it will start to test it. If negative the machine will run for about 15 minutes if positive we will get the results as early as 5 minutes. The testers will have on PPE. Head, face shields, gowns, and shoe covers, and gloves. This is a great opportunity for teams to ensure safety during these current times. This is recommended but not required for all coaches and student-athletes. Student-athletes will need a permission slip signed to test.
