Faculty and staff can get a no cost rapid COVID-19 test two ways:
On campus (Dr. Bob Smith Health Center): An appointment is required and can be scheduled by calling the health center at 214-768-2141.
Off Campus (Virtual Care Families): Several locations around the DFW area offer COVID–19 vaccines.
There are three steps to get a test through Virtual Care:
Step 1: Pre-Screening
In order to be tested for active COVID-19, SMU faculty and staff (and your spouses and dependents) may book a visit at one of the DFW clinics ahead of time through a virtual visit.
Step 2: The Screening Process
Through the virtual screening process, a physician will triage you and based on your symptoms and exposure, determine if you are a “low COVID-19 risk” or a “potential COVID-19 risk.”
If you are confirmed to get a test, you will be booked at a DFW Urgent Care for Kids clinic of your choice
Step 3: Find a Testing Site
Several Urgent Care for Kids clinics throughout the DFW area are open 7 days a week for rapid COVID-19 testing.
