  • Please arrive at the VHAC Building 2620 N. Russell Long BLVD, Virgil Henson Activities Center but do not go in the front doors to the building. COVID testing takes place at the southernmost doors on the west side of the VHAC.  If standing at the main entrance, look to the right of the entrance approximately 2/3 the length of the building and you will see an awning with another set of double doors (by the weight room).  There are two designated parking spots for SMS COVID testing near the testing area.  You can park in one of these spaces. 

Please Note: If you are a student athlete, contact your coach or athletic training staff for the date, time and site specifically designated for athletic testing.  If you are told to test at SMS do not choose Athletics. 

  • The test will be a nasal swab.   
  • Once you arrive,  stay outside and contact SMS by calling 806-651-3287 to let us know that you have arrived and have received the CURATIVE confirmation for your testing.  We will make sure that you are in the correct location. 
  • Results will arrive via your Buff e-mail.  It is very important to be checking your e-mail 24-36 hours following testing!   If you have symptoms, have been directly exposed to someone who is positive, or if you test positive, please self-isolate and notify your immediate supervisor (if applicable).
