Who Should Be Tested?
We are currently testing those with COVID like symptoms and asymptomatic or symptomatic close contacts of a positive COVID case. Kansas State University offers voluntary asymptomatic testing at no cost at Lafene Health Center for students, faculty and staff. An asymptomatic carrier is someone who has contracted COVID-19 but shows no symptoms throughout the course of the virus. Asymptomatic carriers can unknowingly infect others and spread the virus. This makes finding asymptomatic carriers critical to slowing COVID-19 because asymptomatic testing helps mitigate the spread of the virus through early detection. The testing site is located in the lower level of Lafene Health Center, with the entrance at the southwest corner of the building. Testing is the most effective way to know your COVID-19 status. It is vital that all symptomatic persons and close contacts follow Lafene Health Center or their primary health care providers' instructions on testing to help stop the spread.
UPDATE: Lafene Health Center is now offering additional COVID-19 asymptomatic testing sites to make testing more convenient for students, faculty and staff.
The hours and testing sites on the Manhattan campus include:
- 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesdays in the Meadowlark Room/Room 262 at Kramer Dining Center.
- 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesdays in Room 101H at the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex.
- 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursdays on the southwest first floor of Derby Dining Center.
Appointments for asymptomatic testing can be made on the myLafene+ patient portal or by calling 785-532-6544. The testing is offered at no cost to students, faculty and staff.
