Asymptomatic At-Home Testing Program

Cape Breton University is participating in an asymptomatic at-home testing program, recommended by Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, for fully vaccinated students, faculty and staff.

Students, faculty and staff who are fully vaccinated as per the CBU Vaccination, Testing and Mask Policy and would like to participate in the program will be given a kit to complete two tests at home on their own time. These tests must be completed and reported within seven days of receiving them. Completed tests will be sent to rapidcovidtest@cbu.ca.

While members of the campus community are not required to take part every day, in an effort to continue monitoring COVID-19 within our community, it is strongly encouraged to do so.

Sign up for the Asymptomatic At-Home Testing Program:

Outside of the CBU Bookstore

Monday – Friday from 8am-9:30am, 12pm-1pm and 3:30pm-5pm

Unvaccinated students, faculty and staff and/or those not interested in doing at-home testing can still get tested in-person at the Canada Games Complex Monday – Friday from 8am-9:30am and 3:30pm-5pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11am-2pm. 

Please note, this does not replace important public health measures like vaccination, symptom screening, social distancing, masking, and frequent hand washing. These tests should also not be used for symptomatic individuals or individuals who had close contacts with known positive cases. Any positive results from these tests must be confirmed by a PCR test, which can be booked by calling 811. 

As per the CBU Vaccination, Testing and Mask Policy, proof of vaccination must be submitted via AppArmor here by October 15, 2021. Visit CBU’s drop-in vaccine clinic at the Canada Games Complex every Tuesday from 10am-3pm.
