On-campus COVID-19 Tests — Appointments Available
Tartan Testing is a simple method to detect if you have COVID-19 even if you don't have symptoms. Knowledge is key to reducing the spread to your friends and colleagues and makes campus activities possible. Everyone in the CMU community coming to campus is expected to participate in Tartan Testing each week. The test takes less than 15 minutes and same-day appointments are often available.
