MAKE IT A HABIT

If a student doesn’t live or work on the flagship campus, and is not attending classes in person, they are not required to get tested, however, health experts recommend making it a habit by getting tested every two to three weeks.

TESTING LOCATIONS

Anyone without signs of illness is encouraged to visit any of the Texas A&M Test locations offering the saliva test, none of which require an appointment or insurance. Results are available within one to two business days. Testing is available for any faculty, staff, student or contract worker at Texas A&M but is not open to the public.

The locations include:

Student Rec Center - 187 Corrington Drive

Enter on south side of the building, near the baseball stadium and follow signs to the testing site on the courts. Parking is available in 100J for anyone holding a Texas A&M parking permit. A few designated free parking spots have been made available to non-permit-holders to use while testing.

CURATIVE TESTS On and Off Campus Kiosks

The Texas A&M University System has provided funding for students, faculty and staff to get tested for free at two on-campus kiosks (outside Rudder and Mays) and a site in neighboring Bryan (Santa Teresa Church). For specific sites and scheduling, visit the website here.

VACCINE INFORMATION

Starting Monday, March 29, anyone at least 16 years old is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Texas. The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for people 16 and older; other vaccines are for 18 and older.

We recommend that you inquire with your local provider, pharmacy, county hub or hospital to see if they have the COVID-19 vaccine available and would allow you to schedule an appointment.

Here is where you can check on availability of the vaccine, and here is where you can sign up for the Brazos County Community COVID-19 Vaccination Hub.

For the latest information, go to Texas A&M’s COVID-19 guidance overview.


Texas A&M Students will have the opportunity to take part in important national research that studies how well the COVID-19 vaccine works to effectively prevent infection & transmission in college students. Learn more about this study and how students will contribute to critical scientific discoveries at PreventCOVID-U.


Note: Texas A&M is aware that the FDA recently sent out a notice regarding the risk of false negative results with the Curative SARS-Cov-2 tests, which are the COVID-19 tests that the university has been using extensively across the System since last year, and one of the COVID-19 tests available on the Bryan-College Station campuses. Texas A&M officials have discussed the FDA’s notice internally and with Curative. At this time, we see no reason to discontinue use of the Curative tests across our campuses.  The FDA’s notice states that a negative result does not exclude the possibility of COVID-19 and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions. The System and its members have consistently communicated that, even though individuals may receive a negative result, they should not assume and act as though they do not have the virus, since no test is perfect, and their risk of infection does not end after taking a test. The System and its members have encouraged individuals to continue to take preventive measures to protect themselves and others from SARS-CoV-2 and to seek additional testing and treatment from their healthcare provider in the event that they experience symptoms compatible with COVID-19.
