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.
