Free COVID tests available for asymptomatic students, teachers and staff

Rapid COVID antigen testing is now available at no cost – by appointment only – at the River Campus testing site in Rettner Hall for educators, staff and students seeking testing. This option may be of particular interest to students who have no symptoms but would like to get tested before going to Thanksgiving.

Appointments are possible on Mondays between 12:00 and 16:00; Thursdays between 1 and 8 pm; and Saturday between 8 a.m. and 12 noon. The tests will take place in the atrium of Rettner Hall near Wilson Commons. Staff and students must bring their RUG ID and wear a face mask at the test location.

While individuals will be notified of the test result, no printed or electronic confirmation of the test result is available at this time. If a student’s rapid antigen test is positive, he will be offered a follow-up PCR test to confirm the result.

Individuals interested in being tested should register for an appointment via this link.
