- Students, faculty, and staff who are physically on campus this semester are eligible for free testing.
- The on-campus testing is not designed to accommodate persons seeking testing for post-travel, post-exposure, or COVID-19-like symptoms. In these cases drive-through or other clinic-based testing is more appropriate.
- Additional testing options can be found through local healthcare facilities and at the Stop-the-Spread website.
- On-campus testing is walk-in with a one-time pre-registration form to be completed.
- Testing will take place in Garvey Hall (B16).

If a student or employee tests positive for COVID-19, their close contacts will be defined as those who have been within 6 feet of distance of the individual for at least fifteen minutes, while the person was infectious. The infectious period begins 2 days before symptom onset. If someone is asymptomatic, the infectious period begins 2 days prior to the collection of their positive test.
All close contacts should be tested but must self-quarantine for 14 days after the last exposure to the person who tested positive, regardless of test result.
Please note: the virus can cause illness from 2-14 days after exposure and asymptomatic individuals can transmit the virus. Therefore, even if an individual identified as a close contact receives a negative test result, they must continue to self-quarantine for the full 14 days as the virus may take up to 14 days to cause illness.
Question: When can a student/employee return to STCC in-person activities after experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms?
