Rapid Antigen Testing FAQs

As of Monday, October 4, if you are not fully vaccinated, you must conduct a rapid antigen test at home before you head to campus. After taking the test, wait 15 minutes. Tested negative? Date the test device, take a photo and upload it to the Campus Safety Watch as part of your application to get your second green QR code. Tests are valid for 48 hours. Please do not come on campus with a test about to expire, or if you test positive.

Free test kits available: Each campus has a supply of Panbio COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test kits with materials for conduct 25 tests at home along with instructions and FAQs. The Ministry of Health provides these kits at no cost in exchange for your agreement to upload a photo of your dated negative tests to my.thrive.health (in addition to the Campus Safety Watch App). We highly recommend this step-by-step demo video for self-administering the test. See our FAQs below for details.

Up to October 29, individuals who are partially vaccinated or seeking approval for a medical or religious/creed exemption can access Centennial College campuses, residence and buildings as long as they have uploaded a photo of a dated, negative rapid antigen test.

Starting October 30, you will only be given access if you are fully vaccinated OR have an approved medical or religious/creed exemption and a valid, negative rapid antigen test result.
