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 for students at Lafene Health Center. 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.
Lafene Health Center is K-State students' cost-effective, physician-directed health and wellness facility. Students visiting Lafene can rest assured knowing their care is provided by a staff of highly credentialed healthcare professionals. Lafene Health Center is fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
