Free COVID-19 Testing for Texas State Faculty, Staff, and Students

VPSA | September 30, 2020

Faculty, Staff, and Students,

Texas State University has partnered with the Texas Division of Emergency Management and Curative Inc. to bring free COVID-19 testing to our university community. The PCR test is collected with an oral swab and results are provided in less than 48 hours. All Texas State faculty, staff, and students are eligible for the testing but it is not recommended for those who have had a positive COVID-19 test within the last 90 days.

SHOW RESPECT—GET THE TEST! COVID-19 can spread silently because up to 40% of infected persons do not know they are infected. It is important to get tested to protect our friends, family, and community, and to keep COVID-19 from spreading on our campuses.

The Curative Testing Kiosk is located on the plaza between Flowers Hall and Evans Liberal Arts building on the San Marcos Campus. Testing will be available from 8am – 5pm, Monday through Friday. Please pre-register for the free test by copying this link: into either Chrome, Firefox, or Safari browser and selecting “All TXST Students, Faculty and Staff Testing Kiosk at Flowers Hall.” You may choose from a list of dates and times to visit the kiosk for testing. Bring a Texas State University ID to check-in for your test. Onsite registration will also be available. The testing is fast, easy, and painless. For more information about this free testing, check COVID-19 Testing Kiosk or call the Student Health Center at 512-245-2161.

If you require accommodations due to a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services at 512-245-3451 or email at least three business days prior to the event.
