COVID-19 Testing

Timely COVID-19 testing is key to slowing the spread of the virus. BGSU is offering free COVID-19 testing to all students, faculty and staff as spring semester begins.

We continue to focus on increased testing capabilities to actively identify positive cases and implement isolation plans and contact tracing to slow the spread of COVID-19. Testing times will be by appointment only. Both rapid and PCR tests are available for those who are asymptomatic, experiencing symptoms, expect they have had a recent exposure, or are traveling from a high incidence area.
