COVID-19 Testing at SMC:
All students are required to be tested each week.
Testing is located in the Buchheit Boardroom (between the library and admin building). Students will receive information about how to schedule their testing times. Check your SMC email frequently.
- Your COVID-19 test results will be ready within 48 – 72 hours from the date and time that your test was taken.
- "Not Detected" means you are negative for COVID-19 (no further action is needed on your part).
- "Indeterminate" means that the test did not detect a clear positive or negative result. (You must contact us at email@example.com, text or call 864-590-6595).
- "Detected" means you are positive for COVID-19 (You must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, text or call 864-590-6595).
Once you have retrieved your results, if your results are Detected-Positive or Indeterminate, call or text SMC Wellness at 864-590-6595 to notify us. You can also email email@example.com with your name, results, and contact number. A staff member will connect with you to discuss a plan for what will need to happen next.
If you have not received your results, please ensure 3 full days have passed since your test date. Then call the helpline at 877-377-3880 or 803-830-4120. You can reach them by email at COVID@LTS.com as well. They will work to secure your results as quickly as possible.
