To accommodate increased demand for COVID-19 testing and expedite the testing process, West Virginia University is moving its testing site at the Student Recreation Center from classroom G44 to the facility’s lower gym beginning Monday (Sept. 13).

In partnership with the Monongalia County Health Department, WVU will continue to offer on-campus COVID-19 community testing opportunities at the Rec Center:

  • Mondays – 8 a.m. to noon
  • Tuesdays – noon to 4 p.m.
  • Wednesdays – noon to 4 p.m.
  • Thursdays – 8 a.m. to noon
  • Fridays – 8 a.m. to noon

As a reminder, community testing is open to WVU employees and residents of Monongalia County.

No appointment is required, and free parking is available in Area 49.

Attendees should wear a face mask and practice physical distancing at the testing site. Attendees also should bring identification (driver's license or proof of address).

In addition to those who have been identified to participate in sample testing, students who are symptomatic or who have been identified as a close contact to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 also are welcome at the clinics.
