RANGER RECOVERY: Updated mask / face covering requirements

How to schedule a COVID-19 Test
 

In order to keep campus open safely, it is imperative we all follow the guidelines and protocols and check your symptoms each day. 

The information on this page will assist you in scheduling a test for COVID-19. Please follow the steps listed below.

A few notes before you get started

Testing for asymptomatic faculty/staff will take place in the Ranger Clinic located in Ranger Hall room 47. 

Testing for symptomatic students will take place at Student Health and Counseling Center located east of Tallent Hall.

All individuals testing at the Ranger Clinic will need to complete a one-time registration in the UW-Parkside testing portal powered by Vivi. On Oct 1, Parkside changed testing partners. As a result, all individuals testing after Oct 1 will need to register in the Vivi system.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 within 90 days, you will need to wait before resuming testing.
