COVID-19 Testing at OHIO
COVID-19 testing strategies at Ohio University include symptomatic testing to diagnose and isolate positive individuals, and asymptomatic testing to identify asymptomatic carriers of the virus, monitor its incidence, and anticipate potential outbreaks. Ohio University has issued a Presidential Health Directive for asymptomatic testing of University community members as a necessary precaution to mitigate community health risks.
Experiencing Symptoms or Think You've Been Exposed?
Follow the OHIO COVID-19 Protocol.
Need an Asymptomatic Test?
Asymptomatic COVID-19 testing is available for OHIO students, faculty, and staff who would like to monitor their health, and for anyone required to take a test as part of the Testing Pathway Program.
Wastewater Surveillance Testing
OHIO’s wastewater surveillance testing effort is part of a grant project administered by the Ohio Water Resources Center and awarded on campus to Guy Riefler, civil engineering chair and professor, and Karen Coschigano, biomedical sciences associate professor. Because wastewater surveillance testing can detect remnants of the COVID-19 virus before individuals have symptoms, this testing is part of an early warning system to detect outbreaks in residence halls.
