Submitted by Lafene Health Center

Kansas State University continues expanding its COVID-19 testing plan by increasing the number of COVID-19 testing locations for students, faculty and staff.

On Tuesday, Jan. 26, Lafene Health Center will begin 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.
  • 11 a.m.–2 p.m. Fridays in the Bluemont Room at the K-State Student Union.

Students, faculty and staff on the Polytechnic campus can continue to access on-campus COVID-19 testing at the Lafene at Polytechnic location. Students on the Olathe campus should contact their primary care providers or the Johnson County Health Department to access a testing location.

Appointments for asymptomatic testing can be made on the myLafene+ patient portal or by calling 785-532-6544. Testing can be done once every two weeks. Results are available in two to three business days in the myLafene+ patient portal. The testing is offered at no cost to students, faculty and staff.

The asymptomatic testing clinic at Lafene Health Center will remain open from 8 a.m. to noon and 1–4:40 p.m. Monday through Friday. The testing clinic is on the lower level of the 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 to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
