Passengers of Troy, Mich.-based ALLSTAR Chauffeured Services can now request to have their chauffeur rapid tested for COVID prior to their trip for extra peace of mind. Rapid testing is available in the Detroit Metro area as well as select cities throughout the United States.
Testing is conducted using the CareStart rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test, which is authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and designed to detect SARS-CoV-2 with a nasal swab. Test results are interpreted within 10 minutes. A $60 fee applies per rapid test requested trip. Prior to pickup, the passenger receives an alert with their ALLSTAR chauffeur information and confirmed test results.
“This is just another step we are taking to give all our travelers options as we continue to support healthy travel for all our guests,” said ALLSTAR Chauffeured Services President Bob Beutel, who has managed to keep his 26-year-old business operating despite challenges of a world-wide pandemic. “We’re working hard to keep our chauffeurs and passengers healthy and confident in our services.”
As the health crisis emerged, Beutel instituted stringent safety-measures throughout his company. ALLSTAR office staff and chauffeurs begin the day with a mandatory temperature check and passengers are greeted and driven to their destination by a masked chauffeur. In the event a guest needs a mask, surgical masks are available upon advance request. UV light sanitization is used daily at the beginning and end of shifts to disinfect shared items used by the chauffeurs, such as keys and iPads, and complimentary hand sanitizer bottles are a staple in all vehicles.
The company strictly adheres to CDC recommendations and requirements for safe travel. Shared reading material has been removed and all touch surfaces are disinfected between trips. Vehicle air filtration systems are sanitized with a fogger disinfectant and ALLSTAR has increased the amount of vehicle Ozone Machine cleanings.
