K-State continues offering COVID-19 testing for students, faculty and staff

Submitted by Division of Communications and Marketing

Lafene Health Center will continue to provide access to voluntary asymptomatic and symptomatic COVID-19 testing at no charge to K-State students, faculty and staff.

Appointments are required for COVID-19 testing and can be made on the myLafene+ patient portal or by calling 785-532-6544.

Voluntary asymptomatic testing is for all enrolled students, regardless if they live on campus or off campus, and for faculty and staff. Students, faculty and staff may participate in asymptomatic testing once every two weeks. Participation is voluntary and the results of the test are confidential.

Symptomatic testing is for individuals who are presenting COVID-19-like symptoms. While faculty and staff will not be charged for symptomatic testing at Lafene Health Center, they will be charged an office visit fee if they see a provider. 

Students, faculty and staff on the Salina campus can access on-campus asymptomatic COVID-19 testing at the Lafene at Salina location.

Students on the Olathe campus should contact their primary care providers or the Johnson County Health Department to access a testing location.

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