Student Health Services will provide free rapid testing for COVID-19 to students with symptoms. The Abbott tests are funded by the state, and supplies are limited. For more information and to determine eligibility, students should contact Student Health Services at 573-341-4284 or

Dr. Dennis Goodman, chief medical officer at S&T, offers the following tips for the campus community following Thanksgiving Break:

  • You will need to re-establish your social “bubble.”
  • Increase your facial covering use. Wear a mask at all times on campus, in public settings and events, and whenever you’re around others, including roommates.
  • Stay vigilant about social distancing.
  • Keep gatherings as small as possible. Remember that even a group of two is a gathering, and the risk exponentially increases as the group size increases. 
  • Delay group meetings as much as possible.
  • Limit outside visitors.
  • Monitor for symptoms daily. If you have symptoms, get tested quickly. Do not come to campus in the meantime. Contact your health care provider or Student Health Services at 573-341-4284 or for guidance.
