COVID-19 Testing Dates Set at Tri-C Sites for Spring Semester
Drive-thru testing coming to four sites from December through April
Drive-thru COVID-19 testing will be offered at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) from December through April as part of a partnership with Care Alliance Health Center.
Free testing will take place Thursdays beginning Dec. 3 while rotating between four College sites. Testing begins at 11 a.m. each day and will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. Individuals seeking tests must be in line by 2 p.m.
The testing service is available to area residents as well as Tri-C students, faculty and staff. The program offers testing to individuals regardless of their symptom status, insurance status or ability to pay. Individuals will not be charged for the test.
A government-issued ID with name and address is required for testing. Those with health coverage are asked to bring their insurance card.
The new dates represent a continuation of Tri-C’s successful fall semester testing program with Care Alliance. More than 2,000 people have been tested at the College since August.
