    Rapid test results are usually ready in about 15 minutes. Results from a PCR test are usually available within three days.

    Tests can be scheduled up to two weeks in advance.

    You’re welcome to use any testing location or provider for a PCR or antigen test. You also may choose to use at-home test kits.

    Self-report a positive COVID-19 test

    If you visit another health care provider, health department or pharmacy, or take a home test if in quarantine or isolation, and test positive for COVID-19, please report the test through the  CMU COVID-19 Healthscreen app immediately.

    Your medical information is confidential. CMU Health will not share your diagnosis with others. Self-reporting helps university health care professionals conduct contact tracing and provide resources and support you may need for working, learning and living in our campus community.
