ABOUT THE TEST
The test process is very simple and safe, and the collection site will be staffed by professionals who will be following a multitude of safety processes.
LifeLabs uses a swab similar to a Q-tip, that is inserted into the front part of the nostril and rotated for fifteen seconds (per nostril). After the sample is collected, the test results will then be available within 24-48 hours on the my.thrive.health website.
If an OHIP number has been provided at the time of check-in/registration, results will also be uploaded to https://covid19results.ehealthontario.ca:4443/agree

Good Day St. Aloysius Community!
Every school in the St. Mary’s FOS has agreed to put together a team to participate in the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life this year. We would like to invite our St. Aloysius families to join our fundraising team and participate in the Relay for Life! If your family is in a position to make a donation please do so here Relay For Life at WCDSB (Waterloo Catholic District School Board): Team List – Relay For Life (cancer.ca) under the team name St. Aloysius.
Here is some information about the Canadian Cancer Society and Relay for Life:
WHY WE RELAY
Relay is more than a fundraiser. It unites a collective of Canadians who are a force-for-life in the face of cancer. It’s a chance for participants of all ages to come together and celebrate the survivors in our communities, who send a powerful message of hope for those living with the disease. It’s a place to honour and remember those currently battling cancer, those who have beaten cancer and those we’ve lost to cancer.
Wherever your Relay takes place, you’ll be joining thousands of people across the country who have shown up for their communities. With your help, we can prove that together, we are bigger than cancer.
With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, we all know someone whose life has been changed by this disease. But each day, our friends, family, neighbours, and colleagues prove to us that while cancer can change everything, it doesn’t have to define who you are. At the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life, we show the people we love that life is bigger than your diagnosis – that no matter where you live, you don’t have to face cancer alone.
CELEBRATE CANCER SURVIVORS
If you are a cancer survivor, cancer-free or living with the disease, we want to celebrate you and the hope that you provide to your community. When you sign up as a survivor for Relay For Life, you will be honoured during the first lap of Relay — the Survivors’ Victory Lap.
REMEMBER THOSE WE’VE LOST
Whether you Relay for a parent, child, grandparent, or friend, luminaries are a powerful symbol that our loved ones are always in our hearts. The Luminary Ceremony at Relay For Life allows us to honour and remember those we love, every step of the way.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Signing up for Relay helps us fund groundbreaking research, provide the largest cancer support system in the country and shape health policies to make living with cancer easier. With your help, we can continue to help those affected by cancer live their lives as fully as possible.
