CDC Safety Guidelines for Vaccinated and Non-Vaccinated infographic

  • Through the state's Community Testing Program, all residents have robust access to no-cost COVID-19 testing through multiple hospital, community health center and other pop-up sites. Results through this program are available within 72 hours or less in the vast majority of cases. At this time, insurance is not required though some providers may recommend appointments or pre-registration to facilitate expedited testing.  It is recommended to verify hours and clinic sites on the vendor's website or social media in the event that sites have changed or closed for weather, etc.  All CSCU employees and non-residential college and university students are encouraged to take advantage of the state sponsored sites. Find a test site near you
