COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 Testing at UM-Flint

To help reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 on campus and in our community, UM-Flint is partnering with MLabs, the University Health Service (UHS) and UM-Flint School of Nursing (SON) to provide opportunities for COVID-19 testing on campus in the Winter semester. This testing is being offered for asymptomatic students, faculty and staff who are working, living or attending classes on campus or a university affiliated clinical site. No out-of-pocket costs are associated with this testing. This testing is by appointment only. 

Individuals must pass the ResponsiBLUE Health Screen on the day of testing.  If you are a student, faculty or staff who does not meet one of the previously mentioned criteria, please do not come to campus for this testing. These individuals, particularly symptomatic individuals, should consult with their health care provider to arrange testing at another location and report your symptoms using one of the UM-Flint online reporting forms.

Collection & Procedure 

The collection procedure takes roughly 30 seconds and is uncomfortable. You will place a flexible sterile swab into both of your nostrils and rotate several times to collect cells and mucus. Please see the attached document about what to expect during your COVID-19 test or watch this video.

Testing is an important proactive step in early detection and mitigating the spread of the virus. We strongly encourage you to participate and hope that you can help do your part and register to get tested.
