The Employee Asymptomatic Testing Clinic on the 5th floor of the CRC has changed its days of operation. Now, employee asymptomatic testing is available only on Tuesday and Friday. The change was made on July 6. 

Testing for SARS-CoV-2 involves a traditional nasopharyngeal swab, which looks like a 6-inch Q-tip. The swab is inserted through the nose to the back of the throat, rotated several times and left in place for 10-15 seconds. The hospital also offers Covid-19 saliva tests.
