The university says starting next week, 450 randomly selected individuals will be asked to participate in the screening. Kent State has partnered with CVS Health for the testing and plans to continue the sampling through the spring semester.
In addition, free testing will be available for students, staff, and faculty anywhere in the U.S. at CVS Minute Clinics that conduct COVID-19 testing.
That testing will be available without a doctor’s note, with or without symptoms, starting October 12 through the spring semester.
The University says anyone in the Kent State family can arrange for a test by calling (330)672-2322.
