Asymptomatic testing no longer being offered at Lafene Health Center

Submitted by Shawn Funk

Effective Monday, Oct. 31, Lafene Health Center will no longer offer COVID-19 testing for individuals who are asymptomatic — absent of symptoms.

If asymptomatic COVID-19 testing is required for travel, PCR testing will need to be completed. The patient will be responsible for the cost of PCR testing. Lafene continues to offer symptomatic testing free of charge to K-State students, faculty and staff. Free access to testing is available until the funds used to support this effort are exhausted. While faculty and staff will not be charged for symptomatic testing at Lafene Health Center, they will be charged an office visit fee to see a provider.

Asymptomatic COVID-19 testing can be completed at Riley County Health Department, as well as at some local pharmacies, urgent care clinics and doctor's offices. Free at-home test kits are also available at Riley County Health Department and the Manhattan Public Library.
