Weekly COVID-19 testing required for those on campus

All Case Western Reserve University students, staff and faculty living on or coming to campus for any reason must be tested weekly at the Veale Convocation, Recreation and Athletic Center. The testing site has moved to Horsburgh Gym.

Individuals must be tested during the week in which they are on campus (the week is defined as Saturday through Friday, as testing does not occur on weekends).

Free parking is available in the Veale Center Garage for those being tested; tell the attendant you are there for testing.

Testing is offered Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Veale Convocation, Recreation and Athletic Center. Walk-in testing ends 20 minutes before the end of the testing day. While testing is mandatory, individuals do not need to wait for their results before participating in on-campus activities.

Individuals who meet the following criteria should not come in for testing:

  • Those who have had a positive PCR test for COVID-19 in the past three months
  • Those in isolation or quarantine as directed by University Health Services or a public health department
  • Those with symptoms.
  • Individuals with symptoms should not come to campus or leave their residence halls. Please call University Health Services at 216.368.2450.

Individuals should not eat, drink (including water), smoke, chew gum or vape 30 minutes prior to their appointment.

Test results typically are available in up to 72 hours.
