University Park students can still get appointments for universal COVID testing

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Appointments are still available for University Park students to receive their required universal COVID-19 test from Feb. 24 through 26 at White Building. Students who have missed a previous appointment or have not yet registered can go to the link in an email from healthystate@psu.edu that was sent to their Penn State account on Feb. 9.

As part of start of in-person learning, Penn State is conducting universal COVID-19 testing of all students who are taking in-person classes or who are taking a fully remote or online course load while living in Centre County or within a 20-mile radius of a Penn State campus.

This second round of universal testing is in addition to the required initial testing of all students before the start of in-person learning, and does not fulfill the requirement that students must have a negative COVID-19 test result from a University-provided test on file prior to, and within 72 hours of, their return to their campus community.

Students at other Penn State locations should review campus-specific testing times and locations for information.

Additional information on testing can be found on Penn State’s COVI-19 virus information website.
