Schedule a Test

The current policy related to testing on campus is:

  • Faculty and staff who are vaccinated must test once every two weeks (instead of the prior requirement to test weekly).
  • Students (graduates and undergraduates) must continue to test once a week.
  • All unvaccinated people must continue to test twice a week.
  • You may test more often at your discretion, as testing capacity allows.

If you have filled out a health reporting form due to a known exposure to COVID-19, you must only test using Baylor Genetics (PCF#1) or Methodist (McNair Hall Room 140). The Rice LAMP testing (Space Science 106) will not test known exposures.

** Please note, PCF#1 tent is located off of Alumni Drive, across from Kraft Hall, near the South Servery.
