COVID-19 Testing


Emory provides two types of COVID-19 tests for all students, faculty, and staff: Screening Test for those who are asymptomatic (no signs of COVID-19) and Diagnostic Test for those who are symptomatic (showing signs of COVID-19) or possibly exposed to COVID-19.

Please do not visit the Emory screening locations if you are symptomatic.

Participants must be symptomatic and should schedule their appointments in advance.
