Frequently Asked Questions

How far ahead of returning to campus should I be tested?

As part of the re-entry protocol, you must participate in COVID-19 testing* and receive a negative result before you return to campus after the holiday break. The test* must be taken at a time that will provide results within 5 days of your scheduled return date. For example, if you are required to return to campus on January 15, you must receive negative test* results between January 10 and January 14. Please plan accordingly for the January 1 holiday when testing may not be available or results may be delayed. 

The test* should be taken within five days before you arrive on campus and this test result should be uploaded to your Magnus Health portal.

* January 5, 2021: This must be a lab-confirmed COVID test, which does not include a rapid test.
