Asymptomatic testing at Queen's

It’s possible to be positive with COVID-19 but not be aware of it. By taking regular tests when you don’t have symptoms, you will help to stop the spread of the virus, protect other people and save lives.

Update on provision of at-home test kits

In line with recent policy changes to Northern Ireland's Test and Trace arrangements, the distribution of LFD Home Test Kits for asymptomatic testing by staff and students ceased on Friday 15 April.

For further information on asymptomatic testing, please visit the NI Direct website.

If you have symptoms

The asymptomatic (lateral flow) testing programme does not replace current testing policy for those with symptoms.

If any member of the Queen's community develops symptoms at any time, it is essential that they self-isolate immediately, take a lateral flow test and follow public health guidance. Find out more in our COVID-19 FAQs.
