Reminder: Pre-Thanksgiving Optional COVID-19 Testing on November 12-13

On November 12 and 13, Central Washington University will host Pre-Thanksgiving Optional COVID-19 Testing from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Nicholson Pavilion Field House. The COVID testing will provide students with information to allow them to better protect their families and loved ones who may be older or immune compromised.

The COVID-19 test is free to students and you are encouraged to schedule an appointment in advance via the CWU Student Health Services webpage. You can get a test without an appointment; however, there may be a short wait. Appointments should last no longer than 15 minutes.

Results should be available in 3-4 days. You will not be required to quarantine while waiting for results. Housing will be available for on-campus residents who test positive. In the case of a positive test, we will follow our current protocols, which include isolation and official release by the Kittitas County Public Health Department.
