UT Capitole University is about to launch a Covid- 19 screening campaign for students thanks to a « drive » located on the Toulouse campus. The saliva tests will be available on presentation of the student’s card.

Within the framework of the Order dated January 21st 2021 on the testing strategy in Higher education and Research institutions, Toulouse Capitole University, under the aegis of the SIMPPS-UFT and of the ARS has decided to facilitate Covid-19 testing among the university students’ community.

Covid saliva tests will be rolled out  under the supervision of Professor Soulat in charge of preventive medicine at UT1 Capitole University. A member of the Toulouse Teaching Hospital (CHU) or of the SIMPPS and two students-ambassadors will be available from 8 am to 1 from Mondays to Fridays. They will attend to the students and the university administrative staff members who want to be tested.

Test results will be sent by sms within 24 hours.

The test samples will be sent to Purpan Teaching Hospital (CHU) by the Purpan staff at UT1 Capitole. Their sequencing and analysis will help to check for the new SARS-CoV-2  variants (UK variant, etc..) among the students population.
