Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about Regis College's testing protocol. If you have additional questions, please email covid19@regiscollege.edu.

Testing for COVID-19

  • When should I test for COVID-19?

    It is important to get tested if you are experiencing any new symptoms or are five to seven days after a known exposure. Even if the symptoms are mild and you believe it may just be allergies or a cold, you should take a test to rule out COVID-19.

  • Can I receive a COVID-19 test at Health Services?

    Both antigen and molecular testing are available for symptomatic individuals and the testing type will be determined by the Center for Health and Wellness clinical team.

    There will be no asymptomatic surveillance testing available at the Center for Health and Wellness.

  • How do I report a positive COVID-19 test result to Health Services?

    • All positive COVID-19 test results should be uploaded to the CoVerified app.
    • Your upload may be either a lab report or photograph of your rapid home test and must include your name, date of birth, date of test and test result.
    • A clinician from the Center for Health and Wellness will reach out promptly to discuss your timeline for return to campus and discuss how you can do your own contact tracing.

Test Results

  • What happens if my test is invalid?

    If your test is invalid or inconclusive, you will be contacted by Health Services and scheduled to retest.

  • What happens if my test comes back positive?

    If your test is positive, Health Services will call you and explain the isolation guidelines and provide health-related resources. All individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are responsible for notifying their own close contacts. The Center for Health and Wellness will provide resources on the notification process.

    If you are a residential student Health Services, the Office of Residential Life, and the Institute for Learning will ensure appropriate accommodations and support are provided while you are in isolation.

    You will not be notified of a positive test result through the CoVerified app.
