On-campus COVID testing site changes method of sample collection

Curative testing kiosk

Curative, the on-site PCR test kiosk located at 24th Street and San Luis, is changing its sample collection method to a shallow nasal self-collection as part of a transition plan to offer a new Abbott PCR test beginning in early July.

Curative also has extended its agreement with OLLU through September. 

Curative began the transition from oral fluid self-collection to shallow nasal self-collection on June 17. Samples can be seen on how this is done here: https://support.curative.com/article/27-instructions-for-a-nasal-swab.

The new collection method is fast, convenient and simple to do. Samples will be observed and directed by Curative on-site health care workers to ensure a good sample is collected. Results will be ready in 24-48 hours from receipt of the sample at the lab. The new test will use one swab and test for SARS-CoV-2, Flu A, Flu B, and RSV.
