Austin Peay State University – in partnership with the Tennessee Department of Health – offers free COVID-19 testing on campus to faculty, staff and students who meet specific conditions.

Boyd Health Services Testing is conducting the testing under a red tent weekdays from 9-11 a.m. at the rear entrance of the Ard Building at the corner of College Street and University Avenue.

Anyone who gets a test can park in spots marked patient parking only.

Testing will be offered on a drop-in first-come, first-served basis. No appointment is necessary.

Upon arrival, patients will create an online account at everlywell.com/register and complete Boyd Health Services paperwork before getting a nasal swab from medical staff.

Patients will receive results by phone or their online account within two to three days.

Boyd Health Services officials urge people to seek testing immediately if they have COVID-19 symptoms such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, new loss of taste, sore throat, nausea or diarrhea; have been in close contact within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more with someone confirmed to have COVID-19; or were informed that a person is a member of a group or team who is undergoing surveillance testing.

Anyone who meets the conditions and seeks testing is also asked to submit a COVID-19 self report form.
