Testing Requirements and Information

Testing without symptoms (asymptomatic):

Beginning March 29, optional on-campus PCR testing will move from the second floor of Murray-Aikins Dining Hall to Sussman Village Apartment A1. It is for students who are feeling well and not experiencing any symptoms. By participating in this testing, you are indicating that you do not have symptoms. Therefore, if you receive a positive test result, Day 0 of isolation will be the date when the positive test was collected. Dates will not be adjusted for symptoms reported after the test result is received.

Testing with symptoms (symptomatic):

If you have symptoms, such as cough, runny nose, sore throat or other potential COVID symptoms, please submit an appointment request to Health Services. Health Services can provide rapid antigen and PCR testing in their testing trailer, located in the Jonsson Tower parking lot. We can also do testing for other illnesses, including flu, strep and mono, as appropriate.

Off-Campus Testing Locations:

If you need a PCR test on a day when testing is not available on campus, there are several testing locations in the community.
