Kansas State University has the capability for symptomatic COVID-19 testing of students, faculty and staff. Symptomatic testing is available at Lafene Health Center for individuals who are presenting COVID-19-like symptoms.

Asymptomatic COVID-19 testing is not offered at Lafene Health Center. If an individual needs asymptomatic COVID-19 testing for travel or other reasons, a PCR test can be completed at Lafene Health Center. The cost of the PCR test will be the responsibility of the patient.

Students, faculty and staff at all campuses also may ask for testing from their local physician or applicable medical professional.

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.
