We're here for you!

If you are asymptomatic, have NOT had an exposure to COVID-19, and want a COVID test for travel please be aware of the following:

  • PCR testing results are taking at least a week to get back at this time (it could become longer because of the increase in testing)
  • Many clinics are running out of supplies so Rapid PCR testing for travel is not a priority
  • The Rapid Antigen test cannot be used for travel

SHAC has created a comprehensive webpage to help the PSU community navigate COVID-19. The COVID-19 Resource page has a wide variety of mental health resources and information covering topics such as: managing stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, surviving/resisting hate and more. 

Inform SHAC of COVID-19 positive test results or diagnosis to help PSU initiate centralized university level responses to protect our community. Please report if you've been to PSU within the past two weeks.
