In case you missed the news, McMaster is starting a voluntary testing program and will be distributing a limited number of Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) to TAs and Sessional Faculty who are providing in-person teaching / instruction over the next few weeks. These members will receive the tests through their Faculty, however an exact date hasn’t been given to us yet. If you don’t hear or receive anything in the coming weeks, please contact your departmental administrator.
Individuals who can participate in this voluntary rapid testing program will be contacted directly by McMaster’s Rapid Test Distribution team. The announcement also says that “the effectiveness of this strategy will be closely monitored over the next two weeks with hopes to expand the distribution of test kits as access to inventory allows”.
