Anyone who is sick or thinks they might have COVID-19 should visit a healthcare provider, such as at A.P. Beutel clinic or seek clinic testing at any of the following testing sites, appointment required, which can be made through the Curative Inc. site. Results are available directly from Curative, usually within 3 days. The test involves a mouth swab.

A.P. BEUTEL Testing Tent, 311 Houston St.

MAROON LINE, 8441 Riverside Pkwy., Bryan

Outdoors behind CB1; parking is available for any HSC parking permit holder. A few spots for non-permit holders are available during testing.

Vaccine: 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.

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.
