UM COVID Communication: January 25, 2022

Dear Campus Community,

Working closely with Curry Health Center and Missoula City-County Health Department, we can now offer expanded COVID-19 symptomatic testing for students, as well as symptomatic testing for current UM employees. This PCR testing will be done at an outdoor, walk-up location Monday through Friday at Curry Health Center. The first appointment will be on Wednesday morning, Jan. 26.

This week will be a trial run of this new testing system. We ask for your patience as we work through any unexpected problems. We’re doing our best to provide this much-needed additional testing capacity and hope that we’ve created a sustainable, and perhaps expandable, model to address demand during the Omicron case surge impacting Missoula.

To sign up, click the link below for either students or employees. Student employees should use the student link as well. You will need to provide your name, contact information and "790" number to secure the appointment. A confirmation email will direct you to a secure intake form to submit additional information and will provide instructions for your test.

STUDENTS (including student employees) please sign up.

CURRENT EMPLOYEES, please sign up.

If you experience accessibility barriers or do not have access to the internet, please call 406-243-4119 for help scheduling an appointment during business hours.
