Closing of Testing Tents

Effective May 20, COVID-19 testing at both HSC and UPC will move from saliva testing at the tents to pick up of antigen kits, as the testing tents will be permanently closed down. Antigen kits will continue to be available to students and employees at no cost.

  • Testing sites at Jefferson Lot and Pappas Quad will no longer be in service. Employees and students may pick up antigen test kits (at no charge) from the USC bookstores, Engemann and Eric Cohen student health centers, and from the CSC desks in USC Housing.
  • Ongoing surveillance for COVID-19 (and norovirus) will continue through wastewater testing in USC Housing properties. Residents will receive notifications to test when thresholds for concern of transmission are detected
