Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result must include the registrant’s first and last name, birthdate, and show a negative result taken within the last 72 hours. The type of test can be an antigen or PCR/NAAT test for COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2. The test should be administered by a laboratory or healthcare provider.
