Voluntary asymptomatic testing
Free, optional saliva-based COVID-19 testing.
Students, faculty, and staff who:
- Do NOT have any symptoms of COVID-19.
- Have NOT been selected for required COVID Check testing that week.
- Have NOT tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days.
- Are NOT currently in quarantine as a close contact of someone with COVID-19.
According to IUPUI researchers, more than 40% of people infected with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms. Know your COVID-19 status for an added layer of protection against the spread of the virus. Remember that a negative test result is just a snapshot of your health at that specific moment in time.
Now available at all campuses in the same locations where COVID Check testing is conducted.
How it works:
Schedule a test via the appropriate link below, arrive at the testing location, and take the saliva-based test. Testing slots open up the Friday before the week of testing (after 2 p.m. Friday for all campuses except Bloomington, and after 6 p.m. Friday for IU Bloomington). Results will arrive via your IU email within a couple of days.
If your test is negative:
Continue on with your normal routine.
If your test is positive:
You’ll receive detailed instructions from IU contact tracers about isolation and next steps, which includes required participation in IU's daily symptom checker. Through the symptom checker, you’ll receive daily text messages asking about your symptoms; this is how you can report any concerns or worsening symptoms, which will alert our team to follow-up with you. You must participate in the daily symptom checker to get official confirmation from IU that you can end your isolation period.
If you receive a positive test result outside of IU's testing, please report your positive result through IU’s self-report form. You’ll receive detailed instructions from IU contact tracers about isolation and next steps.
