K-State Polytechnic offers on-campus COVID-19 testing
Students, faculty and staff on the Kansas State University Polytechnic campus can now access on-campus COVID-19 testing at the Lafene at Polytechnic location.
Lafene at Polytechnic is offering asymptomatic testing as an expansion of the university's testing plan. Students can schedule an appointment through the myLafene+ patient portal and faculty and staff should call 785-826-2955 to set up an appointment.
The test will be a 10-second self-administered nasal swab test. This is not the deep swab but is a more comfortable and quick testing method that is still very accurate.
Test results will be available 48-72 hours later in the myLafene+ patient portal. If a participant tested positive, they will receive a phone call when results are available and instructions for how to isolate and prepare for contact tracing.
If a student tests positive for COVID-19, they should not participate in asymptomatic testing for the rest of the semester. Students can only participate in asymptomatic testing once every two weeks.
