Rapid Antigen Testing FAQs

Anyone needing access to Centennial College’s campuses, residence, or other properties who is not vaccinated must have a College-approved medical or religious/creed exemption and a valid, negative rapid antigen test.

Please complete the rapid antigen test at home before heading to the College and wait 15 minutes for the results. Tested negative? Date the test device, take a photo and upload it to the Campus Safety Watch. Test results are valid for 48 hours. Please do not come on campus with a test about to expire, or if you test positive.

Test kits available: The Ministry has provided the College with free rapid antigen test kits from three suppliers, Panbio (Abbott), Veritor (BD), and Rapid Response (BTNX).

If you are using these kits, you will be required to upload a photo of your dated negative test to as well as to the Campus Safety Watch App. We highly recommend you watch this step-by-step demo video for self-administering the test, and read the FAQs below to ensure you understand how to: set up an account with thrive health; administer the Panbio rapid antigen tests versus the Veritor tests; and upload your results.
