Testing When You Are Sick or Have Been Exposed

Students and employees who are sick and are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 have the option to make an appointment for a nasal PCR test at the Student Health Center (SHC). The test will be billed by the Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group to your health insurance. We recommend confirming with your health insurance that a test at the SHC will be covered prior to testing.

You should also consider getting a free at-home test or contacting your primary care provider for a test or utilizing one of the free drive-up testing options in the area.
