Since the start of the 2021-22 academic year, York University has offered a free testing program to community members on both campuses, in partnership with the Provincial Antigen Screening Program (PASP). Rapid antigen testing allows the University to proactively identify cases of COVID-19 that may have otherwise been missed, helping to reduce the spread of the virus while supporting community health and safety.
To make rapid testing even easier and more convenient for York community members, York is offering an at-home rapid antigen testing program.
Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home and are encouraged to complete a self-assessment using YU Screen.
