Project Screen by Prenetics had to create a safe environment for international teams to train and play at test match locations across the country, starting with the Ageas Bowl.
Semi-permanent drive-through testing stations were setup in the car parks of major cricket venues including Old Trafford and the Ageas Bowl to test venue staff and teams. Mobile testing units were also used to facilitate the ongoing testing of broadcast staff within the grounds.
The RT-PCR test was used to screen for SARS-CoV-2 used in conjunction with our Digital Health Passport solution. For added security, the passport included a symptom and tracking survey.
The first match against the West Indies was played on July 8th. 450 players, staff, match officials and broadcasters were successfully screened.
