TESTING SITE UPDATE (11:30a on 1/14/22): The testing site now has a new limited supply of rapid antigen tests. We also still have Lab PCR tests which take 1 to 4 days to process.

TESTING SITE UPDATE (9:30a on 1/14/22): The testing site has run out of rapid antigen tests. We do still have Lab PCR tests which take 1 to 4 days to process. Those are typically only used for symptomatic testing. We hope to have more antigen tests in again soon and will update out testing web page with details.
Testing Site Update (8 a.m. 1/14/22): The COVID -19 testing site for RRPS students and staff has a limited supply of Lab PCR tests (takes 1 to 3 days for processing) and a limited supply of rapid antigen tests available. The PCR tests are used for symptomatic testing, while the rapid antigen tests are used for the Test to Stay program, close contacts and surveillance testing. We hope to have more testing kits delivered soon.
As a reminder, the Lab PCR tests have a 1 to 3 day turnaround time for results. Due to the high demand, they are running on the longer side of that time estimate. Please be patient and check your PMG account in the status section for any results. They will post them there once ready and will also text or email you. We appreciate your patience. Also, if the status section does not show a test, it does not mean they lost your sample, it simply means the results are not yet ready.
