Testing Policy

Large-scale testing is in place on campus and includes conventional qRT-PCR testing from Baylor Genetics and Methodist Hospital, and an experimental LAMP test developed here at Rice University.

  • Faculty and staff who are vaccinated must test once every two weeks.
  • Students (graduates and undergraduates) must test once every two weeks.
  • 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.
