Calendar Icon


All Gustavus students and employees who have lived, learned, or worked on campus this semester are strongly encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 at our mass testing event on Friday, November 13 from 12-6 p.m. 

The event will be held in the Lund Center forum. You must enter through the event entrance on the north side of the building by the Norelius Hall/Jackson Campus Center parking lot. No appointment is needed.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 90 days, you do not need to be tested again. If you are currently experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, please contact the Health Service or go to for more immediate testing options.

Students who participate will be entered into a drawing for a pair of FREE Airpod Pros and a JBL Speaker.

About the test:  This is a saliva test (you spit into a small vial) that provides a 99% accuracy rate. Results will be sent via email within 24-72 hours. The test is administered by Vault Health.

Testing Protocol:

  • Do NOT eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum 30 minutes prior to testing.

  • Bring a smartphone to complete the registration/testing process. (If you don't have a smartphone, a tablet will be provided.)

  • Bring your Gustavus ID to check in.

  • Allow 30 minutes for testing, along with additional time if there is a wait to test.

  • Wear a mask to the testing site and keep it on the entire time (lifting it up to spit into the vial).

 The test is free. You will be asked for your insurance card, but it is not required.
