Self-Testing in Schools

Self-testing is safe, easy to use, provides fast results within 15 minutes, and most importantly, is gentle. It only take a few seconds to collect a sample using a swab that goes into the upper part of each nostril. These tests can be done almost anywhere, at any time to see if you may have COVID-19.

Following self-testing (rapid test) pilot in select schools to gauge the demand and uptake for self-administered rapid tests to screen for COVID-19 on an ongoing basis, Saskatchewan is expanding the self-test at home program throughout the province.

The province is providing rapid tests to schools for distribution to any students and staff and their families.

Note that participation is voluntary.

It is recommended that residents stay home at the first-sign of any COVID-19 symptoms and self-test.

A Questions and Answers document is available for parents, caregivers and schools.
