The consent form is available on site. Students unaccompanied by a parent or guardian must bring signed consent. Download the consent form here: Life Labs Consent
Why is asymptomatic testing being recommended?
Asymptomatic testing is an important layer of protection that helps to track and prevent the spread of COVID‐19. Increased testing may also help to reduce stress and anxiety related to the virus by identifying cases early and avoiding outbreaks.
What are the details 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 parameters. LifeLabs uses a swab like 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 LifeLabs WorkClear Thrive application. Learn more: http://hwdsb.info/LifeLabs
