The Abbot ID NOW test can deliver positive test results in five minutes and negative results in 13 minutes.

The University’s asymptomatic COVID-19 testing center in Foggy Bottom will move to a stationary trailer Wednesday after previously operating out of the University Student Center throughout the pandemic.

The testing site will relocate to a medical trailer in Lot 3 at the corner of 20th and H streets, according to an email sent to the University community Monday. Asymptomatic testing will continue at the University Student Center through Tuesday, and symptomatic testing will remain at the Colonial Health Center along with routine asymptomatic testing at the Virginia Science and Technology Campus, according to the email.

The email states the medical trailer will open for testing at 6:30 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, 6 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 8 a.m. each Friday. The site will close at 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and at noon on Fridays, the email reads.

The testing center will be closed during the weekend.

Officials require monthly COVID-19 tests for fully vaccinated students returning to campus and weekly tests for students who are unvaccinated as a part of the University’s fall operating plan.
