I am an SMU faculty or staff member. How do I get a COVID-19 test?

Convenient no-cost COVID-19 testing is available for SMU faculty, staff and benefits eligible spouses and dependents at 9 DFW Virtual Care for Families locations. The closest testing center to the SMU campus is minutes away on the corner of Preston Rd. and Forest Ln. (see below). Other locations in Arlington, Frisco, Garland, McKinney and Plano may be convenient to your home or along your commute to and from work. They are open 7-days a week. Locations and maps are listed at the bottom of the appointment page. Results are typically available same day.

When you book, enter “SMU – COVID-19 test” in the reason for visit box and click on the “self pay” button. Screening and testing costs are completely covered by SMU. Note that virtual telemedicine appointments indicate Round Rock, Texas, as the location. Once the patient is in the visit with the provider, the provider will schedule a curbside visit to a clinic at a location of the patient’s preference in the DFW metro area if any tests are needed.
