Dear Students and Faculty,
As we all strive to get back to normal life, testing for COVID-19 is essential to ensure that outbreaks do not occur in our community. We have partnered with Inspire Diagnostics to provide a testing program for this coming semester to provide the testing for our community. We ask everyone to register through the link below.
Our test procedure is very simple and painless. It is self-administered using an anterior nasal swab that is completed in the comfort of one’s home. There is NO OUT OF POCKET COST* to you.
*Inspire Diagnostics will bill your health plan, the government, a government health plan or the uninsured fund for the testing. There will be no patient out-of-pocket cost. For those individuals wishing to pay personally rather than having it submitted to their health plan, the price is $119 for testing, plus $10 for electronic order review by an authorized 3rd party provider.
Why Frequent Testing is Important
COVID-19 is a virus that is very infectious between 3 to 10 days from the time of infection
Over 40% of the people who have the virus are asymptomatic and show no symptoms
Without regular testing, there is not a clear way to monitor against the infection
Frequent testing has been shown to be the best way to create a safer environment
