What protocols are in place for COVID-19?
Students who are approved to write at Testing Services are required to schedule an appointment before coming on site. The booking schedules for each campus are linked above. Testing Services is no longer able to accommodate walk-in appointments or same day testing as was done prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. As well, our testing labs have reduced capacity in order to help promote physical distancing in order to keep any staff and students safe who are in the centre. In addition to this, all students are required to:

We will also have some non-medical face masks to supply to students who are writing in the centre and don't have one. A face mask or covering must be worn in our reception area and in any of our testing labs. Students that require access to a private room as a part of an approved academic accommodation can remove their face mask/covering once they have safely made their way into the room and closed the door behind them.
- Not come onto campus or into Testing Services if you happen to be sick or showing symptoms in relation to COVID 19.
- Sanitize their hands before approaching our front desk area for assistance. Please note we have hand sanitizer stations installed throughout our centre. If students wish, they can also head to the nearest washroom to sanitize their hands before entering the centre.
