Here’s what you need to know about the testing process: 

  • It’s Simple - The testing method is self-administered, non-invasive, and takes less than five minutes. Results are typically available within 24-48 hours. NOTE: You should not eat, drink (including water), chew gum, smoke, or use tobacco products within 60 minutes of providing a saliva sample. Doing any of these things within 60 minutes of providing a sample could produce an inconclusive result and require you to re-test.
  • Your Information is Protected - Your test results will be sent directly to your Cleared4 portal. They will also be shared with Waubonsee’s Human Resources (HR) Department so that the proper health and safety protocols can be followed in the case of any positive results.
  • It’s Free and Convenient - You can test at any Waubonsee Campus. Any individual who tests positive will be notified by HR or another Waubonsee staff member trained as a contact tracer to follow standard protocols.
