Howard U. Lays Out Coronavirus Testing Terms for Campus Entry

Howard University’s plan for reopening this semester amid the coronavirus pandemic has been shared on the school’s website, stating that prior to entering the campus, faculty, students and staff must present a negative COVID-19 result or get tested on campus.

Although COVID-19 positivity rates for testing conducted on campus during the initial five weeks of the fall 2020 semester have been less than 1%, any student or staff member who has symptoms or has had close contact with someone who has tested positive must get retested five to seven days after exposure, the Howard website said.

Results from the on-campus COVID-19 testing laboratory can be provided within a 24-hour time frame.

COVID-19 testing for students will be held at the Student Health Center by appointment only during regular business hours (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 8:30 a.m.-noon, 1:30 p.m.-3 p.m.; Wednesday: 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.)

Howard University employees may obtain COVID-19 testing at Howard University Hospital, Towers Building, Suite 3600. The testing hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.- 4 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon.
