-------

UNMC faculty, staff and students on the Omaha campus may register now for a free COVID-19 test prior to Thanksgiving. 

Tests, designed for individuals who are not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, will take place in the Center for Healthy Living (CFHL) gymnasium from 8 to 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 23 and 24. 

Participants are asked to: 

  • Register online for a timeslot (Faculty, staff and students are urged to register in advance to reserve a time slot and ensure adequate numbers of test kits are available); 
  • Bring their ID badge; 
  • Enter the CFHL through the southeast doors;
  • Follow campus safety protocols of wearing a mask, social distancing and self-screening with the 1-Check app upon entrance. Individuals who are experiencing symptoms consistent with possible COVID infection (fever, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of sense of smell or taste), should not be tested at this site. Instead, go home, self-isolate and contact the Student Health (402-559-7204) or Employee Health (402-552-3563) Clinic, as applicable, for further guidance and testing.

A nose swab process will be used instead of the more intrusive deep nasopharyngeal test. Individuals even will have the option of swabbing their own noses or having a nurse perform the swabbing.
