Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing Clinic Continues Today

Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing Clinic Continues Today
University Relations

The Arkansas Department of Health will host a testing clinic on campus this week.

With the number of COVID-19 cases continuing to rise in Arkansas, increased testing remains critically important this spring semester. As such, the Arkansas Department of Health is offering COVID-19 testing for the University of Arkansas campus community prior to the start of classes.

Drive-up testing for COVID-19 will be offered from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. through Friday, Jan. 6-8, in the parking lot across from Baum-Walker Stadium at the corner of South Razorback Road and West 15th Street.

Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to get tested.

There is no out-of-pocket cost for testing, however students, faculty and staff should bring their insurance card and university ID. Mask requirements will be in effect except for the few seconds needed to conduct each test, and results will be returned within 24-48 hours.

Individuals tested at this on-campus clinic do not need to self-report positive results to the university, however as a reminder, those tested off campus who receive a positive result are required to fill out the self-report form and self-isolate.

Unable to Attend Testing Clinic?

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Pat Walker Health Center's goal has been to provide the campus community with convenient access to testing resources and support. PWHC continues to offer on-campus COVID-19 testing for university students and employees five days a week.

Schedule COVID-19 testing online at myhealth.uark.edu.

COVID-19 testing conducted at PWHC is not available without an appointment.

If you need to schedule COVID-19 testing, please call 479-575-4451, option 1 to speak with a scheduler or medical provider.
