COVID-19 testing for university students and employees

Universal testing now available in every county for college/university students, faculty and staff

The Mississippi State Department of Health announced this week that universal testing is now available in every county for college and university students, faculty and staff. You can be tested free at any scheduled county health department testing locations listed on this page, or daily at the free testing site in Jackson. Testing is offered at these locations only on scheduled days (see complete list here or list below for area county health department locations)

You will need to make an appointment before you visit by filling out an online questionnaire. You will receive an appointment regardless of whether you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone who is infected. When completing the online questionnaire, be sure to answer the questions through the fourth question which asks, “Are you a student, faculty, or staff member of a Mississippi college or university?” When you respond “yes” you will be taken through options to choose a location and select a day and time.
