Testing Cost

Test Type

The test provided by the University is a viral COVID-19 test and NOT an antibody test. The viral test being used detects if the person is currently infected with COVID-19. The antibody test is to determine past exposure or infection. We will not be conducting antibody testing.

The University will not be using the oral swab test you may have seen. We will be utilizing a much less invasive nasal swab test. This type of test causes minimal to no discomfort.

Getting your results

COVID 19 test results will be provided to you by telephone, text message, email, electronic portal and/or letter. You may view your results here:, after the results have been reviewed by the provider.

  1. Results are expected within 72 hours.
  2. Patient remains at home until test results are received (unless the employee is already working on campus).
  3. Patients with negative test results are cleared to return to campus.
  4. Contact tracing will be conducted for any positive test results.
  5. The CDC symptom-based strategy will be utilized for return to work after a positive test result and 14-day quarantine period.

Important things to remember:

  1. Practice social distancing by staying six feet from others at all times.
  2. Wash your hands often and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth or use hand sanitizer if soap is not available.
  3. Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering when around others and out in public.
  4. Self-monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19 such as cough, trouble breathing, fever/chills, headache, muscle pains, shaking, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of sense of taste or smell.
  5. If you do develop symptoms, please contact your primary care provider for additional evaluation and let them know you were tested for COVID-19. Make sure you stay in a specific "sick room" and use a separate bathroom if possible.
  6. If you test positive, you will need to continue to self-isolate and the local health department will be in touch with you by phone to review additional information and help with contact notification.
