Q: The link to get a test doesn't work, or won't let me register.
A: Please contact your employer or Consentry Support to get a new link.

Q: If I don't get tested after getting an alert, can I still go to work?
A: You should get a test as soon as possible after receiving an alert from the Consentry app. Please check your employer's policies on returning to work beforehand or whilst waiting for your results.
