RRU rapid testing program

Royal Roads is committed to protecting your safety and wellbeing. 

All students, staff, faculty, associate faculty and contractors who are on the Royal Roads campus this fall must declare their COVID-19 vaccination status or take a mandatory weekly rapid COVID-19 test. You may be asked for proof of vaccination. 

This program is an important part of our continuing work to promote a safe learning and working environment during the pandemic.

Vaccination self-declaration

You will receive a link to your self-declaration in an email.

If you are fully vaccinated, this will be the only step you have to take. It will only take a few minutes to complete.

Royal Roads has partnered with Thrive Health to provide easy access to self-declaration. Your response is confidential and will be securely stored. Learn more about Thrive Health's privacy policy.

You must complete your declaration by Oct. 3. We encourage you to report your vaccination status as soon as possible.

How to participate in rapid COVID-19 testing

If you are a student, staff, faculty, associate faculty or contractor who will be on campus and is not fully vaccinated, or you choose not to disclose your status, you will need to take part in weekly COVID-19 rapid testing.

COVID-19 rapid testing is not considered a substitute for vaccination. We strongly encourage all eligible students, staff, faculty, associate faculty and contractors to get vaccinated.
