App State will offer multiple on-campus COVID-19 testing events each week for students and employees who would like a COVID-19 test for any reason.
Please make sure to bring your AppCard and your Banner ID.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays
noon - 4 p.m.
Getting tested at an on-campus testing clinic will fulfill the weekly COVID-19 testing requirement for unvaccinated students and employees and you do not need to submit your results as these will be on file.
Students and employees who are unvaccinated or who have not yet uploaded their proof of vaccination will be required to submit a COVID-19 test each week. PCR or Antigen tests will be accepted.
REMEMBER: If you get tested at an App State testing clinic, your test results will be automatically provided to the university. You do not need to submit these results.
If you test positive for COVID-19 follow the instructions below:
PCR (molecular) and antigen (rapid) tests are both used to diagnose whether someone is currently infected with COVID-19. According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), each test looks for something different to determine if someone is infected: a PCR test looks for the virus’s genetic material, while an antigen test looks for specific proteins on the surface of the virus. PCR tests are processed in a laboratory, which can take a few days; antigen tests are often processed at the point of care, such as in a health care provider’s office, in about 15 minutes.
