Thousands of free COVID-19 rapid antigen tests are now available to students and others at Brock University as part of ongoing efforts to keep the campus community safe.
Starting Wednesday, March 16, students can pick up a rapid antigen test kit from one of the following locations on the main St. Catharines campus. Plans are also in the works to have them available at the Hamilton and Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts sites.
- Rankin Family Pavilion Welcome Desk – 8:30 to 4:30 p.m.
- Student Success Centre in Guernsey Market – 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
- Walker Complex Welcome Desk – 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Student Wellness HUB (TH134) – 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Rapid antigen test kits are also available at no charge to faculty and staff and are being distributed to departments through the Senior Administrative Council.
The Brock community is encouraged to use the tests should they choose to take part in St. Patrick’s Day gatherings, as well as upon returning from March Break travel this week.
Since early February, the Province of Ontario has been distributing 5.5 million rapid tests each week through pharmacies, grocery stores and community partners. Visit Ontario’s COVID-19 website for more information on where to access free tests in communities across the province.
