“We are excited to be able to offer this rapid antigen testing, which will help keep our students safe,” says Dr. Dennis Goodman, Missouri S&T’s director of student health and chief medical officer. “S&T can now provide results to students the same day that they come into the clinic to be tested for COVID-19.” 

Earlier this month, Missouri S&T issued its “Miner Roadmap” for students’ return to campus during the pandemic. The 20-page booklet, which can be found at coronavirus.mst.edu, provides guidance for students and their families as they return to campus. Missouri S&T’s classes began Monday, Aug. 24.

To minimize the risk of COVID-19 on campus and in the Rolla community, the university has implemented a number of changes for the fall semester. The changes include requiring students and employees to check their temperature daily and to self-monitor for symptoms, requiring face coverings in classrooms and common areas, and social distancing recommendations.

Any S&T students who suspect they might have COVID-19 should contact student health services at 573-341-4284 or covid@mst.edu. For more information about Missouri S&T’s response to COVID-19, visit coronavirus.mst.edu
