I am not participating in the SARSSURV study

How can I get my test result?
  • The results of the analysis of your sample are usually available within 24 hours of your sample being deposited. You will be able to access your results by clicking on this link.  You will be prompted to enter your barcode number and complete some general information. In a limited number of cases, the analysis cannot be performed (non-compliant sample) or the sample cannot be linked to a barcode (missing or illegible barcode).  If you cannot access your result within 48 hours, you are probably concerned by one of these situations.  We invite you to repeat the test next week and to follow the instructions 
  • A positive, negative or inconclusive result will be linked to your number.
  • This test result is anonymous!

How do I get my result?

Getting my test result

Your test result is usually available within 24 hours after you have submitted your sample tube.

You can access your result by clicking on this link.

  1. Click on the "I am participating in the study" button.
  2. Encode the identification code that has been provided to you (attention: this is not the barcode of your sample!) and select the group to which you belong (staff or ULiège student)
  3. Encode your barcode number and fill in some general information.

In a limited number of cases, the analysis cannot be performed (non-compliant sample) or the sample cannot be linked to a barcode (missing or illegible barcode). If you cannot access your result within 48 hours, you are probably affected by one of these situations. We invite you to repeat the test next week and to follow the instructions carefully

Your number will be associated with a negative, positive or uninterpretable result.

What should I do if my test comes back negative?

  • Continue to respect the barrier gestures: it is important to remain vigilant.
  • Take a new test the following week. Regularly consult this link to check the days and locations for the kit collection and sample drop off points.
  • ATTENTION: If you develop even mild symptoms potentially attributable to COVID-19, even if you have recently received a negative result, you should isolate yourself and phone your doctor without waiting for the next saliva test.
A negative result means that the screening test that ULiège carried out on your sample wasn’t able to detect evidence of the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for COVID-19.  Because of the reduced sensitivity of the saliva tests, your result could be a false negative. You should, therefore, remain vigilant and continue to respect social distancing and barrier gestures.

What should I do if my test comes back positive?

  • Place yourself in isolation immediately for a period of 10 days and respect the measures applicable to those who have tested positive for COVID-19. Keep the original barcode from your test, as you will be asked to provide it.
  • The Belgian government website states that you may leave your home after 10 days
    • if you have not had a fever for at least 3 days;
    • if you no longer have respiratory problems (being out of breath, having trouble breathing)
  • Follow the instructions that appear on the results screen.
 
A positive result means that the screening test that ULiège carried out on your sample found evidence of the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for COVID-19.

What should I do if my results are inconclusive?

Why are certain results inconclusive?

The technology used to carry out the screening tests can generate inconclusive results: this means that the results obtained do not allow us to determine if your sample tested negative or positive.

Survey
"COVID and Me"

In order to monitor and adapt the recommendations related to the COVID-19 control measures within ULiège, a "COVID and me" survey is being conducted since September 2020.

Completely anonymous, this survey takes about 10 minutes. Participation is open to anyone over 18 years old, living in Belgium and attending ULiège as a student or staff member.
