COVID-19 Testing

Testing is a critical tool in the fight against COVID-19. It helps diagnose current infections, minimizes transmission, and better protects communities. Campus members are encouraged to take advantage of the robust testing options available in the Atlanta and Covington communities.

Oxford students who are symptomatic should call the Oxford Student Health office at 770.784.8376 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to schedule a diagnostic test. For after hours and weekends, call 404.727.7551 and press 0 for the medical advice nurse.
