The AVP has partnered with Task Force Lab (TFL), a privately-owned full service, concierge COVID-19 testing provider based in Pasadena, Calif. to facilitate the processing of hundreds of PCR swab tests on-site each week in an effort to ensure that the competition site stays free of the novel coronavirus.
