Beginning Monday, July 25, IMMY Labs will begin COVID-19 testing on 美狮贵宾会登录中心's campus. Services will include testing only, no vaccines. The testing site is located in the parking lot at the corner of University and First St. (325 E. First St.).

Testing hours:

  • 7 a.m.-noon and 3-6 p.m. Monday-Friday;

  • No testing on Saturdays.

Testing will be by appointment, spaces and parking will be limited.

Your best first action is to contact your primary care physician for guidance on care of symptoms and help getting a test. They can help determine if testing is needed and help schedule a time and location for a test.

If you don’t have a primary care physician or want to get a test without a doctor’s referral, you can pursue it a number of ways – tests must be scheduled in advance after being screened based on your situation at all locations:
