The University of Toledo is suspending its random COVID-19 surveillance testing program during the summer months, though on-campus COVID-19 testing for faculty, staff and students will continue to be available.

Asymptomatic students and employees, including those who have been exposed to someone with the virus but have not developed symptoms, can request a free rapid COVID-19 test through the University’s online scheduling portal, beginning Monday, June 6.

A limited number of at-home COVID-19 antigen tests also will be available at no cost to asymptomatic students and employees at the University Health Center during regular business hours. On Health Science Campus, at-home tests are available to students and employees at the Morse Fitness Center.

Students and employees who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 have access to on-demand testing at the University Health Center on Main Campus from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Those who wish to be tested should go to door 2 at the front of the building and call 419.530.3451 to notify staff they are there for a test.

Testing also is available for symptomatic individuals through The University of Toledo Medical Center by calling 419.383.4545.

The decision to suspend the University’s surveillance testing for summer is based on the limited number of employees and students physically on campus during the summer.

The University will reevaluate its surveillance testing program ahead of fall semester.

The University will not be updating its online COVID-19 dashboard during the summer while surveillance testing is paused.
