Applicants who are invited to participate in the Shuttle Run test or the PREP test are asked to provide a Negative COVID-19 test result taken within a 48 hour window. Testing must be performed using either a rapid antigen test or an RT-PCR test. Candidates must not attend any police facility if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or answered YES to any of the COVID screening questions.
