A big thank you once again to all community members who participated in the COVID-19 Screening Program in January. We completed 5,842 individual tests across five testing days. A total of 13 positive asymptomatic individuals were identified and would have otherwise gone unrecognized, which shows the importance of continued testing. The results are testament to the approach taken throughout the pandemic and the way in which the KAUST community has followed and adhered to the Keeping KAUST Safe guidelines.
As part of the COVID-19 Testing Plan, KAUST, in collaboration with Government Affairs and the Ministry of Health (MoH), is hosting a third round of the COVID-19 Screening Program. This will run from March 7 to 11.
Participation in the COVID-19 Screening Program is mandatory for all KAUST residents aged 18 and over and non-resident KAUST employees and students, including those living and working outside KAUST. Younger people from age 7 to 17 are eligible for testing. Testing for this age group is not mandatory.
Anyone who has received their COVID-19 vaccination will still be required to participate in this testing program.
It is as important as ever that we continue to follow the advice and mitigation measures in place and continue regular community testing to help limit the spread of the virus.
1. You must book a slot on the KAUST booking system.
2. Closer to your appointment date, you must register and book on the Sehhaty app. Registering and booking on Sehhaty is a prerequisite for testing. Follow the step by step guide to register and book on the App. Bring the Sehhaty QR code to your appointment.
Important: You need to bring TWO QR codes to your appointment from the: 1) KAUST booking system; and 2) Sehhaty MoH system
The deadline for booking your appointment is 5:00 p.m. on March 6, but do not wait to book as slots will fill fast.
Important reminder regarding non-compliance:
Keeping KAUST safe continues to be our number one priority and the third round of the COVID-19 Screening Program is another step towards our common goal of returning to a "new normal." For more details about the program, how to make a booking and FAQs, please visit the COVID-19 Screening Program page on the KAUST Health website.
For any questions or assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We appreciate your support for this program and cooperation in Keeping KAUST Safe.
Director, KAUST Health
