Everything You Need to Know About COVID Testing at OC for the Spring Semester

Covid testing with deSteiguer

To ensure early detection and monitoring, upon return to campus all students, faculty and staff are required to test negative for COVID-19.

Free, FDA Approved, On-Campus Rapid Test

Students, faculty and staff can access free testing. Because test kits are provided by the State of Oklahoma, only members of the OC community can participate.

The test involves a simple nasal swab - rather than the more invasive nasopharyngeal cavity swab - and results are delivered in less than 30 minutes.

See the January 19 to 25 testing times below (Gaylord University Center, south lobby):

  • Tuesday, January 19 to Friday, January 22 - 10:00 to 11:30 a.m and 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, January 23 - 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, January 24 - noon to 4:00 p.m.

- Beginning Tuesday, January 26, testing is available from noon to 1:00 p.m. every week day in Heritage Plaza, room 102.
