The state of Minnesota is sponsoring a pre-Thanksgiving testing at Augsburg University. This is a free saliva test. Results take a few days to arrive. To ensure an accurate test, do not eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum 30 minutes prior to testing. No insurance needed but, if you have it, bring your insurance card. This testing event is open to everyone, symptoms or no symptoms. Off-campus students also are eligible for the AirPods giveaway.
About Negative COVID-19 Test Results:
According to the CDC, if you receive a negative result from a COVID-19 test result, that means that you probably were not infected at the time the sample was collected. You should continue to take precautions against COVID-19, including washing your hands often, keeping 6 feet of distance between yourself and those you do not live with, and wearing a mask in public.
In addition, if you were in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you need to stay home for 14 days after your last contact with that person, even if your test result is negative, the Minnesota Department of Health states. This is to avoid exposing others if your test result was a false negative. If you develop symptoms after your negative test result, you will need to get tested again.
