Testing

Guidance

Kansas State University has the capability for symptomatic and asymptomatic COVID-19 testing of students, faculty and staff.

On-campus testing capability for COVID-19 testing of students, faculty and staff is available at Lafene Health Center. Symptomatic testing is for individuals who are presenting COVID-19-like symptoms. Voluntary asymptomatic testing is for all enrolled students, regardless of whether they live on-campus or off-campus, and for faculty and staff. Students, faculty and staff may participate in asymptomatic testing once every two weeks.

The university generally will not require employees, students or visitors to undergo testing for COVID-19. However, in limited circumstances, certain employees, students or visitors may be required to undergo testing at reasonable intervals if the individuals will be engaging in activities where the risk of transmission of COVID-19 is high, or if participating in the activity while actively infected or after having been infected could present a significant health risk.

In addition, students residing in on-campus housing will be required to be tested for COVID-19 before moving into residence halls.
