TVM.Bio® has our start in the entertainment industry but that quickly changed in March of 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic. Many companies came to us asking to use our Smart Badge™ technology to solve their problem of quickly identifying the COVID status of their employees before entering their facilities. Not only did we solve that problem but we took it one step further by securing FDA approved COVID-19 PCR and Antibody tests by only the best and most trusted manufactures.

Even though we have a list of services you can choose from, we can customize our services for your needs. So if you do not see a service you require, please send us an email.
Allow us to gather and compile all the necessary data needed for your company to combat this COVID-19 pandemic. Making informative decisions can be difficult in this climate with local, state, and government regulations constantly changing. We make sure to provide the proper guidance provided by CDC, OSHA, HIPAA, and ADA. Let TVM.Bio® help limit your legal liability with our knowledge and technology.
Purchasing COVID-19 tests can be difficult and confusing. From understanding the difference between molecular and serological to distinguishing the difference between Positive Percent Agreement percentages can be perplexing. Let TVM.Bio® handle the headache of securing COVID-19 tests for your company while simultaneously obtaining the lowest price on the market.
No matter the size of your company, TVM.Bio® can conduct onsite or offsite COVID-19 testing of all employees. Let us worry about scheduling, administering, and monitoring the results in a customized employer dashboard for upper management and Human Resource department. Unlike other companies that only perform test once and then they are gone, TVM.Bio® will establish an ongoing schedule for testing so shortages of COVID-19 tests or price spikes don’t effect your company.
Knowing if any of your employees have COVID or have been tested can be a daunting task. TVM.Bio’s patent pending Smart COVID-19 Employee Badge™ is a simple solution to a complex problem. With built in NFC (Near Field Communication) and/or RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) the Smart Badge™ offers workplace safety and security. Management can use any portable NFC device (mobile phone, tablets, etc.) to simply check the COVID-19 infectious status of an employee.
Let TVM.Bio® quickly and easily organize the COVID-19 testing of your company. Simply send us an excel spreadsheet or CSV file of who needs to be tested and we’ll do the rest. From scheduling the employees to performing the tests, our online portal will streamline the process. Fully HIPAA compliant, our technology will assist in making sure the right forms get to local, state, and government agencies.
Onsite collections can save you TIME and MONEY. TVM.Bio® believes in building relationships with our clients, not simply conducting “transactions”. When factoring in your employee wages for travel and wait times, your drug test per person could be costing you more than you think. Onsite collections can help maintain the integrity of the drug testing process. When sending an employee offsite for a drug test, there is ample opportunity to try and cheat the test. Onsite drug testing services can help enforce your drug and alcohol-free policy and support a safe working environment.
TVM.Bio® can offer you the lowest pricing available for COVID-19 tests because of our unique testing model and long term relationships with manufactures and distributors. Our pricing for test are determined by a number of variables. Lower pricing can be obtained by longer contract times, larger amount of tests ordered, and longer notice periods before initial testing dates. All prices are subject to change without notice and are not guaranteed, except pricing for orders that have been accepted.
All our products and services have been rigorously tested and approved by all government agencies. Everyone wants to show their clients, customers, fans, and friends that they have been COVID-19 tested and are safe to be around. Our Smart COVID-19 Card™ does exactly that! So feel free to contact us if you are a teacher, realtor, babysitter, chef, general contractor, sales person, hair dresser, barber, makeup artists, etc.

In 2017, a stage diver landed on a man’s head at a punk music festival in New Jersey. That man, who experienced significant spinal damage, successfully sued the show’s organizer for $2 million.
Will we see an explosion in these types of liability lawsuits in the coming months, as music festivals come roaring back around the world, bringing an increased risk of Covid-19 cases with them?
The answer is largely not — because festivals have preempted such scenarios. New coronavirus-specific liability clauses are springing up on most large-scale festival websites that suggest you’d be wasting your time, energy, and money lawyering up if you contracted Covid-19 at a show. Take Bonnaroo’s statement, for example. While the four-day, Tennessean extravaganza planned for September says its team has “taken enhanced health and safety measures for you, our artists and employees,” festival-goers must still “follow all posted instructions” while on site, and, most importantly: “By attending Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to Covid-19.”
“You’re going to see this specific language pop up everywhere,” Audrey Benoualid, music attorney and partner at Myman Greenspan Fox Rosenberg Mobasser Younger & Light LLP, tells Rolling Stone. “It’s in all the agreements we’re doing just generally now.”
Language similar to Bonnaroo’s can be found on the website for San Francisco festival Outside Lands, due to take place in October. But at press time, Milwaukee competitor Summerfest and Southern California’s Coachella did not have a clause specific to Covid-19 on their websites.
When asked why, a Summerfest organizer responded that the event’s “materials, including the website, will be updated as we get closer to the opening of Summerfest 2021,” which is scheduled for September. Representatives for Coachella, which is currently slated for 2022, did not immediately reply to request for comment.
The Summerfest representative said that new phrasing has already been added on its admission tickets. A Summerfest ticket reviewed by Rolling Stone tells the would-be attendee within its terms of service that “by holding this ticket, you agree to assume all risks associated with Covid-19 and other infectious and/or communicable diseases, viruses, bacteria, or illnesses, as well as agree to all other terms set forth at www.summerfest.com and posted at all entrances.”
Summerfest is also affiliated with Ticketmaster, the ticketing company owned by Live Nation, which has taken a wordy, seemingly ironclad approach on its own website. Live Nation tells fans: “You assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting a communicable disease or illness — including, without limitation, exposure to Covid-19 or any other bacteria, virus, or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether that exposure occurs before, during, or after the event, and regardless of how caused or contracted — and you hereby waive any and all claims and potential claims against Ticketmaster, Live Nation, and the Event Organizer (as defined in our Purchase Policy) — and against any companies affiliated with Ticketmaster, Live Nation, or the Event Organizer — relating to such risks, hazards, and dangers.”
Benoualid notes that “as much as people can put in clauses or language to absolve themselves of liability, I don’t think you can fully contract around gross negligence.” If a festival does not comply with guidelines as they evolve, for instance, it could still find itself on the hook for audience members contracting Covid-19.
“But the burden of proof is going to be next to impossible because contact-tracing isn’t that specific or detailed right now,” says Benoualid, adding that the suing concert-goer would have to prove that their Covid-19 illness was a direct result of the festival’s negligence. A hypothetical scenario could look like this: If the government is still imposing a mask mandate but no one at the festival wears a mask, its organizers may face liability for it turning into a super-spreader event.
Festivals’ protective language around Covid isn’t unique to their attendees, either: Benoualid works on contracts for artist clients, who are facing their own set of tightened rules. “There have always been force majeure provisions throughout most transactions, but nobody focused on them ever,” she says. “Now, everyone’s on high alert and we’re getting creative about what we require.”
In a recent non-festival performance contract she worked on, Benoualid says the force majeure provision — which usually supplies standard, vague language protecting events from liability around natural disasters — had to be specifically hashed out. “We have to negotiate: Do [the artists] keep half of the fee or 75 percent of the fee? Do they get reimbursed for costs that come out of pocket? That becomes a fight now. Because nobody can be insured for it, everyone is even more concerned by the costs with no policy to cover them.”
Some in the industry have begun to argue that Covid-19 shouldn’t fall within the force majeure category, since the more-than-a-year-long pandemic is not an unforeseeable event like a flash flood. “We fight about that,” Benoualid says. “Sometimes we’re able to say, ‘Covid as of the date of this agreement and its current status.’ If a new government order comes out that actually restricts you from doing something, then that would constitute force majeure. But if it’s the person feeling uncomfortable, and it’s not government-mandated, then that wouldn’t be force majeure.”
In short: The Covid liability around large events like festivals is complicated and still-shifting, but organizers will fight hard to keep it off of their books. “They’re going to do everything that they can in writing to absolve themselves to the extent that is legal to do so,” Benoualid says. So if you’re thinking about heading to a festival in 2021, your best bet is to think twice about excessive spit-swapping behavior and take all the safety precautions you can — because no fest wants to pony up for any Covid medical bills. (Hey, at least bogarting a joint has never been more socially acceptable.)
