COVID-19 Testing

Facilitated by CSB Health Services, COVID-19 testing will be available to all CSB and SJU students by appointment.

COVID-19 Testing Locations and Information

SJU Campus
Clemens Stadium Concession Area (use main entrance to stadium) 
Monday – Friday
Appointment window: 9:30-11:30 a.m.

CSB Campus
In front of CSB Health Center (parking lot #6)
Monday – Friday
Appointment window: 1:30-3:30 p.m.

Please note, the CentraCare Clinic at Saint John’s will not be offering COVID-19 testing. All information is subject to change and testing hours may be adjusted based on volume. Testing criteria will follow guidance from MDH and CDC.

At time of testing, all students will be asked to complete a HIPAA form that allows us to release test results to the Student COVID-19 Coordinator Team. This team will initiate contact tracing and facilitate services for our students (isolation, food, garbage, etc.). If the student being testing is a student-athlete, the form will also allow us to notify the head athletic trainer. If possible, please complete the HIPAA form prior to arriving on campus. Once complete, you can fax to 320-363-6396 or e-mail to [email protected].

Faculty and staff should contact their medical provider for testing.

Known Exposure

Students who have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 must quarantine (stay in their living quarters and monitor their health) for 14 days. If unable to go home to quarantine, students may be directed to move to designated quarantine spaces on campus. Students who have had a known exposure or close contact with a person with COVID-19 should call CSB Health Services at 320-363-5605 to schedule a COVID-19 test.

Learn more about CSB/SJU quarantine and isolation protocols.

Reporting a Positive Test

If a student tests positive for COVID-19 at an off-campus testing location, they must notify the Student COVID-19 Coordinator Team at [email protected].

Students who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate at their permanent residence. If unable to isolate at permanent residence, students will be moved into isolation space on campus.

Surveillance Testing

At this time, MDH and the CDC are not recommending universal asymptomatic testing as a prevention strategy, despite some colleges choosing this route. Surveillance testing requires a significant use of limited resources and raises equity, ethics and capacity concerns among public health officials. Additionally, surveillance testing only gives a snapshot of a situation, which may be different by the time results are returned. Testing will be reserved for students who are symptomatic or have known exposure to someone with COVID-19.

General Health

CSB Health Services and the CentraCare Clinic at SJU will continue to offer primary and preventative health services to students.
