Through grant funding received from the partnership of UNC Board of Governors HSMI Committee and the N.C. Policy Collaboratory at UNC-Chapel Hill, FSU Cares (Covid19 Assessment, Research & Emerging Science) was established on campus. We provide free COVID-19 testing to the community and FSU. Testing is free and available for any individual over the age of 13. Those aged 13 to 17 years will need parental/guardian consent. The parent/guardian must also be present for testing.
