COVID-19 Rapid Testing Information
UWF Student Health Services is now performing rapid COVID-19 testing.
- Appointments are required to receive the test. Appointments will be offered from 1–3 p.m. Monday–Friday.
- Appointments must be scheduled before 11 a.m. to receive same-day testing (if there are open appointments).
- The testing will be conducted outside of the Student Wellness Center (Building 960). Access the site best through Parking Lot A.
- The test will be performed by a nurse, and you will receive your result within 15–20 minutes. You will not see a provider during this allotted time.
- For any additional testing other than COVID-19 students must make a separate appointment with a provider.
- Students must complete documentation prior to arriving for their appointment. This will be sent securely through DocuSign. If this is not completed before a student arrives for their appointment they will be rescheduled.
- All students must adhere to campus safety protocols including completing the Daily COVID-19 Return to Campus Pre-screening before arriving for appointment.
- At this time rapid COVID-19 testing is only being performed on students that have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days or is displaying symptoms of COVID-19.
