Heading back to campus soon? Make sure you’ve ordered your at-home COVID-19 test! All students who'll be living on campus, taking face-to-face classes, working or doing research on campus during the spring semester are required to do an at-home test before they return to Athens.

If you are in Athens and want to get tested, here's an easyoption.

If you are in Athens and want to get tested, here's an easyoption.

Demand for asymptomatic COVID-19 testing was so high we added more testing capacity. (Nice job, Bobcats, taking advantage of this service!)

If you are feeling fine but would like to know your status, testing is available seven days a week through Dec. 13. (Hint: Slots open at midnight, so when demand is high it is best to schedule as close to midnight as possible.)

Email: [email protected] to schedule an asymptomatic test.

Feeling symptomatic or think you were exposed? Call the COVID-19 Hotline at 877-682-6819.
