5. COVID-19 Testing Available on Memphis Campus
A COVID-19 testing site has been set up on the Memphis campus in the Student-Alumni Center (SAC) gymnasium at 800 Madison Ave. The gymnasium is located on the backside of the SAC and patients should enter via the breezeway, and not through the front door of the SAC.
The SAC testing site is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays 12:00 – 4:00 pm and Saturdays 1:00 – 3:00 pm with no appointment necessary for faculty, staff, and students. Spouses, family members, and friends of UTHSC faculty, staff, and students cannot be tested at the SAC location and should go to a community testing site operated by University Clinical Health (UCH). The SAC testing site is closed on holidays.
The SAC testing site is for those who are asymptomatic (no symptoms) and have had no known exposure to COVID-19.
Those with symptoms or who may have been exposed to COVID-19 will be referred to a UCH mobile testing site by texting “COVID” to 901.203.5526. Test results will take about 48 hours to be returned to the patient.
