Testing & Tracing

Knowledge is power. That’s why testing and contact tracing are critical to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on our campus.

We’ve established a comprehensive testing and contact tracing system to help contain the spread of COVID-19 on our campus. The Brown-Lupton Health Center has been remodeled to accommodate keeping symptomatic students separated from other students during testing.

Should I Get Tested?

If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive, it is important to be screened.

Contact Tracing

TCU will work with Tarrant County Public Health to notify anyone known to have come in close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19. We won’t release the name of the affected person and we ask that the entire community support our efforts to protect others’ privacy. It is crucial that individuals be truthful and thorough in reporting to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Contact tracing is critical in protecting the health of the most vulnerable in our community.
