As the fall semester nears and more of our students and team members return to campus,
I want to share plans for COVID-19 viral testing that will be available to TTUHSC
students and team members in Lubbock. Texas Department of Emergency Management will
provide a drive-thru test site from August 3 to 24 at the Museum of Texas Tech. Testing
is provided at no charge, but pre-registration is required at https://texas.curativeinc.com/welcome.
Please keep in mind, a negative test for COVID-19 only reflects that you were not
infected at the time of testing. I strongly encourage you to continue following health-related
precautions to protect yourself and others. This includes physical distancing, wearing
your facial covering in a public space, washing your hands with soap and water, and
using hand sanitizer often when hand washing is not possible.
If you receive a positive test, or at any time you experience fever, cough, shortness
of breath, or other COVID-19 symptoms, please follow our exposure protocol for students and team members as noted on the TTUHSC Safe website.
Details for the on-campus COVID-19 drive-thru testing site:
Dates: August 3 - 24
Hours of Operation: 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday (weather permitting)
Location: Texas Tech University Museum - North Parking Lot
Address: 3301 4th Street
Cost: Free to students and team members
Your response to the changes brought about by COVID-19 has been tremendous and a true representation of our ONE TEAM value. I encourage you to continue caring for yourself and for others by taking necessary precautions to avoid contracting and spreading this virus.
