Catering Hall and Events Testing Protocol

May 12, 2021

 

Catering Hall and Events Testing Protocol

 

Governor Andrew Cuomo recently updated the state’s catering hall guidance. Starting on May 19, the indoor social gathering limit will increase to 250 and the outdoor social gathering limit increased to 500. Catered events can exceed the social gathering limits of 250 people indoors or 500 people outdoors if all attendees over the age of four present either proof of full vaccination status or recent negative COVID-19 test result and the required social distancing can be accommodated.

In order to find a test, please use the links below. Guests must present a negative test collected within 72 hours of the event start time, or an antigen test result conducted within 6 hours of the event start time. Those who have received the vaccine will not be required to present a negative test if they have received their second dose at least 14 days prior to the event.

Additionally, Discover Long Island’s Health and Wellness Ambassador, Dr. Michelle Reed will be offering direct service to the guests of Long Island catering hall gatherings. She will be offering on-site same day rapid tests, as well as PCR tests with the guarantee that patients will receive their test results within 72 hours. For PCR tests, Dr. Reed will offer tele medicine options, where patients will be able to perform tests at home over video conference. Dr. Reed is also offering her services in the form of creating COVID-19 safety plans to ensure your businesses are in line with state and local health guidelines.
