OSU continues to explore and expand capacity in the provision of COVID-19 testing on OSU campus locations. National standards and changing technology will continue to shape planning as access and improvements to COVID-19 continue to emerge. This includes diagnostic testing in a medical setting, screening for specified high-risk areas, arrival testing for on-campus residential students, and OSU’s comprehensive prevalence testing. For detailed information, see the OSU Testing Strategy & Summary tab below.

Employees not serving in specified higher-risk employment activities will not be tested as part of any asymptomatic screening measures. Any individual with COVID-19 symptoms should work directly with a health care provider to determine if they need to be tested for COVID-19. As new testing methodology emerges, OSU will continue to explore opportunities to expand testing across OSU’s communities.
