Routine Testing remains available to our faculty, staff and students via AVENTUS in Garage A main campus Monday-Friday 9-5 and Saturday 1-5. COVID Line nurses use standing orders for faculty, staff and students who request testing. Also, SHS, UCF Health, and community providers may order testing through AVENTUS. This testing is via nasal pharyngeal (NP) samples with PCR testing. Results are available within 48 hours. Cost is a patient responsibility (has been covered by insurance).

Random Testing is by selection of groups which may be at higher risk of COVID.  Via a randomized selection process a subset of the group is identified for testing.  This testing is primarily designed to measure prevalence of COVID within selected groups but also identifies persons who may be infectious. Testing will be done at SHS on the main campus Health Center using observed self-collection of nasal samples and the Abbott ID Now molecular testing system. Results will be same day and we anticipate selecting 110 persons for each testing event.  I anticipate conducting this random testing every two weeks for the next year. Cost for this required testing is covered by the UCF Cares money.
