Dear St. Paul Families, Students and Staff,

Please see the information below, regarding a FREE and voluntary opportunity for St. Paul students and staff to register for “Asymptomatic Testing” this weekend at Resurrection Catholic Secondary School.

 

Free COVID-19 Testing Available for Students & Staff

 

Free, voluntary COVID-19 testing for all asymptomatic (those who are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms) students and staff is available as follows:

 

Saturday, March 6th, and Sunday March 7th, 2021

10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Resurrection Catholic Secondary School

455 University Avenue West, Kitchener

 

It is recommended that you register ahead of time at my.thrive.health (https://tinyurl.com/b3nxz3j7) using this code: Waterloo-hubsite1

 

If you are unable to pre-register, participants are welcome to walk-in to the location during the allocated testing time.

 

ABOUT THE TEST

 

The test process is very simple and safe, and the collection site will be staffed by professionals who will be following a multitude of safety processes.

 

LifeLabs uses a swab similar to a Q-tip, that is inserted into the front part of the nostril and rotated for fifteen seconds (per nostril). After the sample is collected, the test results will then be available within 24-48 hours on the my.thrive.health website.

 

If an OHIP number has been provided at the time of check-in/registration, results will also be uploaded to https://covid19results.ehealthontario.ca:4443/agree

 

Thank you for helping us keep the St. Paul School community safe and healthy so that we can avoid any further disruption from the COVID-19 virus!
