Offer: PCR Testing for Schools and Universities in the UAE

If you are required to or wish to test for COVID-19 prior to the start of the new academic year, Mediclinic Middle East is offering a special rate for PCR testing for students, teachers and employees working in schools and universities.

A PCR test is mandatory for Dubai faculty and staff before the start of the 2020/2021 academic year. Abu Dhabi students who are 12 years old and above, as well as staff returning to school are required to take a nasal swab test. In Sharjah, school staff and students of all ages must take a Covid-19 test before classes resume this term.

What is a PCR test?

The PCR test, which stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction, is a type of test used by local and global healthcare authorities to test citizens for COVID-19. To confirm whether an individual has the virus, a PCR test will be conducted using a nasal swab.

How long will the results take?

All samples are processed in Mediclinic’s molecular laboratories to ensure high quality and swift turnaround times of approximately 48 hours.

How can I avail the special rate for students and academic staff?

In order to take advantage of the special rate you are kindly requested to present your student, teacher or employee ID card.
