Does SHS test for COVID-19? How can I be tested?
Yes, Student Health can test for COVID-19. Call 703-993-2831 for appointment scheduling. A healthcare provider will evaluate your condition and, when appropriate, order a test for COVID-19. Testing is by appointment only.
SHS has rapid point-of-care and PCR testing available for current COVID-19 infection.
The testing site location is at SUB 1 (4469 Aquia Creek Lane, Fairfax VA). It is building number 53 on the Fairfax campus map.
Some patients may need testing in a healthcare facility due to medical need, and not the testing site. This will be communicated during scheduling.
There is no out-of-pocket cost for testing for students who do not have health insurance. Students can use health insurance for testing; many insurance plans cover the cost of testing. For more info, visit https://www2.gmu.edu/safe-return-campus/faqs-safe-return/faqs-covid-19-testing.
