VCU Together update for faculty and staff - January 28, 2022

COVID-19 testing available on campus

Our priorities are the health, safety and wellness — both physical and emotional — of every member of the VCU community. VCU continues to monitor, assess and address the changing guidance, best practices and circumstances related to COVID-19. This update will be a resource to help keep you informed as details become available. All updates are available at Receive notifications by downloading VCU Mobile from your iOS or Android app store.

Testing for COVID-19 is available

Testing for COVID-19 is available on campus for VCU employees. Here are the ways you can get one.

  • No symptoms, but need a test? At-will testing appointments are available for asymptomatic VCU community members. At-will testing appointments can be made for any reason other than symptomatic testing (i.e., if you have symptoms). 
  • You have symptoms, and need a test? Call 1-804-MYCOVID or 1-804-692-6843 for a referral for symptomatic testing. 

When should I call the MYCOVID call center? 

If you recently tested positive, have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 — whether you are fully vaccinated (initial dose(s) and booster), partially vaccinated or unvaccinated — contact the MYCOVID call center at 1-804-MYCOVID or 1-804-692-6843 for further guidance. Through the MYCOVID call center, you can report positive tests (taken outside of VCU), report exposure to a known positive case, find testing opportunities on-campus or connect with Student Health Services or Employee Health.
