Many people can have Covid-19 and be unaware as they have no symptoms. This means that you could be spreading the virus and passing it on to others without realising, including those who may be vulnerable. At a time when our health services are under extreme pressure, it is essential that we all play our part and do what we can to limit transmission of the virus – you can do this by getting tested (and self-isolating if you test positive).
Getting tested will give you peace of mind and reassure you that you are doing everything you can to protect yourself and those around you. If all members of the Queen’s community who need to be on campus and/or live in University accommodation get tested regularly then we minimise the risk of the virus spreading and keep the campus a safe place to live, work and study.
The tests are free, quick and easy to do and we are asking all members of the Queen’s community to get tested before coming on to campus for any reason and then continue to get tested regularly (ideally twice a week) if you are going to be living, working or studying here.
