Sign on Armstrong Campus advertising free COVID testing.

Georgia Southern will be offering free COVID-19 tests to students and faculty with an Eagle ID at the Armstrong Center, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
New students need to acquire a physical form of their Eagle ID to present to the nursing staff to receive their swab. New students who do not have their card or a picture will not be tested.
Those reporting symptoms will receive a rapid antigen test and can expect to receive their results before departing the Armstrong Center. Asymptomatic students will receive a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test and will likely receive their results 24 to 72 hours after receiving their test.
For more information on the University System of Georgia’s response to COVID-19 and the recent Omicron variant, visit the CDC’s website, which has been repeatedly cited as the source of the USG guidelines.
The Inkwell will continue to update readers on how COVID-19 will impact students for the Spring 2022 semester.
