- Students who feel unwell or have a high fever, severe cough, chest pain or severe sore throat should contact SHS at the same number above to speak with our advice nurse and arrange testing and a visit with one of our providers.
- Students who have no symptoms but would simply like a test may use one of the self-test kits available at SHS and other sites on campus (while supplies last) or may wish to schedule an appointment with Willamette Valley Toxicology Lab in downtown Corvallis for PCR testing. Testing appointments for Willamette Valley Toxicology can be made online.
