|At-Home Tests Available on Campus|
For most COVID-19 testing needs, home antigen tests are a quick and easy way to find out whether you have COVID-19. You can use rapid tests in most cases, including if you :
• Have symptoms (retest after 24-48 hours if the first test result is negative)
• Have been exposed to someone who tested positive (test 5 days after exposure if no symptoms)
• Plan to attend a gathering or event, or spend time with people are at risk for serious illness
• Need to show a negative test result for return to work or school (employer or school district policies may vary).
For the health and safety of our community, please do not administer these tests while you are on campus.
You can pick up your free at-home COVID-19 test at any of the following locations on campus (during regular business hours):
• Facilities Main Office
• HR Office
*Please wear a mask when picking up your test from these offices if you have symptoms or suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19. These COVID-19 tests must be self-administered off-campus.
