Featured FAQ

Why is it important to regularly get COVID-19 testing if I don’t feel sick?
Many people can carry the virus without showing symptoms. By getting tested when you are asymptomatic, you are doing your part to prevent further spread of the virus to your family, friends, and others by identifying the virus, isolating, and cooperating with contact tracers.
Where can I get tested if I don’t have symptoms?
The UO offers free COVID-19 testing for all asymptomatic UO employees, students, and the Lane County community. Testing is quick and easy, usually taking only 15-30 minutes from start to finish. You collect the sample yourself by swabbing your nostrils. To learn more and make an appointment, visit the UO COVID-19 testing web page
