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 also has implemented a wastewater surveillance testing effort as part of an early warning system to detect outbreaks in residence halls.
Ohio University has issued a Presidential Health Directive for asymptomatic testing of University community members as a necessary precaution to mitigate community health risks. Asymptomatic testing of students, faculty, and staff is accomplished through the Testing Pathway Program.
