USU Eastern COVID-19 Testing Begins

 

At the Utah State University Eastern campus, we have made free minimally invasive COVID-19 testing available to students beginning Friday of this week, and Monday and Tuesday of next week. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity, particularly if you are planning to travel for the Thanksgiving Holiday, so that you can make appropriate plans if you have COVID-19. (Testing is not available to students under the age of 18).

Watch a video to learn more about the test (Understanding that you will check in at the Student Center on the Eastern campus, not in Logan).

How to Schedule a Test:

To schedule a free student COVID-19 test in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center Multipurpose Room, visit Aggie Health and log in. After you select a date and time, you will receive a QR code that you will need to check in at the testing site.

If you currently have COVID-related symptoms, do not come to this student testing site. Schedule a test immediately at a community testing site. Find the nearest testing site: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/testing-locations/.

Where to Get Your Test:

Student testing is offered in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center Multipurpose. Entrance will be in the hallway adjacent to the Alumni Room. You will self-administer your testing sample using a short swab.

When You Will Get Your Results:

You will receive an email to check your results in Aggie Health within 24-48 hours. Unless you have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19, you will not need to restrict your activities while you wait for your results.

If you test positive for COVID-19, your results will be forwarded to USU’s case containment team and you will receive information about how to self-isolate for 10 days. Positive cases are also shared with the Utah Department of Health, who shares the information with the local health department.

If you have any questions about weekly testing, you can reach out to Greg Dart at 435-613-5220.

Testing from Thanksgiving to Spring Semester

Testing for students remaining on campus will continue to be available after Thanksgiving. Schedule a test at Aggie Health.

Thank you for doing your part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our campus community.
