Queen’s to resume on-campus Covid-19 testing on Jan. 11th

Queen’s University has announced that its satellite assessment centre will be reopened to students as of January 11th, 2021. According to a news release, the testing centre will continue to be at Mitchell Hall and will be open from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 4pm.

“Testing is available to Queen’s students experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, who have travelled outside Canada in the last 14 days, or who require testing for contact tracing purposes. Learn more on the Student Affairs website,” the statement said. Students are asked to call Student Wellness Services at 613.533.2506 to book an appointment.

In addition to the reopening of the testing centre, Queen’s has implemented various strategies aimed at reducing the spread of Covid-19 in the community. In particular, the university is asking all students who are coming from outside of the KFL&A, Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, and Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark region to isolate for 14 days and avoid situations where they can come into contact with others.

For students living in residence, Hospitality Services have created designated areas to enter and exit meal halls in order to reduce foot-traffic:

  • Leonard dining hall students will enter through the Gord-Brockington tunnel and exit through the main Leonard Hall entrance
  • At Ban Righ dining hall, students will enter through the West doors into the seating area to line up, move through the servery in one direction and exit through the East seating area exit doors.
  • At Jean Royce Dining Hall, students will enter and exit for dining as normal. For the barista, students will enter through the doors opposite the Barista, and exit through the doors to the right of the Barista.
