Posted on Dec 08, 2020

Thank you to everyone who has booked and attended so far, we have more than 3,000 bookings scheduled. The feedback from the community has been very positive. We wish to thank everyone who has been tested so far and we are looking forward to seeing many more community members over the coming days.

 
Did you forget to make a booking and still want to be tested? 
Drop-in appointments are now available!
  • If you have not yet booked an appointment but want to have the antibody test, you can come to the testing station any time between 5:15 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. as a drop-in appointment (either in a car or on foot)
  • If you have already booked an appointment slot, please do attend at the booked time
 
Why participate in the program?

The testing will enable individuals to identify whether they have previously been exposed to the COVID-19 virus by determining if antibodies are present in their system. It will also help to understand the recent levels of exposure and prevalence of the virus in KAUST, which may have been undetected through asymptomatic positives. While PCR testing only detects an active COVID-19 infection, antibody testing will look back at a longer history. There is no quarantine if you are positive for antibodies.
 
For more details about the program and FAQs, please visit the COVID-19 Antibody Testing page on the KAUST Health website.
 
We appreciate your support for this program and cooperation in Keeping KAUST Safe. 
 
Kind regards,
Daniel Buttigieg
Director, KAUST Health
