Access rapid antigen tests now

Monday, November 20, 2023

Rapid Antigen tests are conveniently available at the Turnkey Desk in the Student Life Centre for the current UWaterloo Community. Campus Housing also offers these tests for resident students - simply inquire at the Residence Front Desk.

Please note: these tests are designed for symptomatic individuals and are not meant for general screening. It's crucial to be aware that rapid antigen tests may sometimes yield false negatives. If you're experiencing symptoms and receive a negative result, complete the Ontario self-assessment at Self-assessment and adhere to the provided guidance.

Ensure safety for yourself and others by maintaining frequent hand hygiene, wearing masks if unwell, and staying home when necessary.
