COVID-19 Virus Testing

UWF will implement a comprehensive pre-screen and testing program as students and employees return to campus.


  • All students and employees visiting a UWF location are required to take the Daily COVID-19 Return to Campus Pre-screening every day before coming to campus. 
  • Student Health Services will procure and administer a COVID-19 rapid test kit for students that allows preliminary results within several minutes. The test will also be sent to a laboratory for final confirmation of COVID-19 within two-to-three days.
  • If an employee is presumed to have contracted COVID-19, the employee must notify Human Resources immediately. Testing will be conducted and provided through a local health care facility, as needed.
