Community Collection

FREE COVID testing funded through federal CARES dollars distributed by KDHE.

Schools, businesses, community organizations, healthcare facilities, and governmental agencies play a key part in ensuring that our community, businesses, and schools are able to STAY OPEN by providing access to COVID testing. This helps to contain COVID exposures and ensures the safety and well being of students, employees, staff and community members.

Community Collection Partners, whether it be a business, church, nonprofit, or school, play the vital role of collecting COVID specimen samples from students, employees, their families, and other community members to be processed with 24-hour results FREE OF CHARGE by the WSU Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory.

Complete the registration below to become a Community Collection Partner by providing access to FREE TESTING to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our state.
