Sonoma State University’s new COVID-19 testing center is now open to all students and employees. Located in the Denali Gym at the Recreation Center, the center can be accessed through the south exterior doors of the facility that lead directly to the Denali Gym.
The testing center will operate three days this week.
- Tuesday, August 24, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- Wednesday, August 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Friday, August 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All future dates and times will be updated on SSU’s COVID-19 information website. Please bookmark and check the site frequently for up-to-date information on testing dates and times. The testing center schedule will be planned to best support the testing needs of our Seawolf community.
Students who are not yet fully vaccinated, including those who have approved exemptions, will be required to complete weekly testing. Vaccinated students may use the center as needed. Employees may also use the center as needed. There is no fee to receive a COVID-19 test. Insurance companies and federal COVID-19 assistance programs for uninsured individuals will be billed directly.
Sonoma State has contracted with Avellino Precision Medicine to administer the COVID-19 testing center. The Student Health Center will receive test results for students. Employee test results will be received by the COVID Monitoring Team.

Face masks are proven to be effective in preventing the circulation of the coronavirus. Face masks are required to be worn when inside all campus buildings, except for residential buildings.
When worn correctly, a mask should cover your nose and mouth completely. The mask should not fit loosely around the edges and should not be worn under your nose and chin. Suitable types of masks are surgical, multi-layer cloth, and N95. Bandanas, gaiters, or vented masks are not suitable. A face shield may not be worn in lieu of a mask. Learn more about face masks on the COVID-19 information website.
Should you forget your mask or need a mask, you may pick one up during business hours at the Seawolf Services Center in Salazar Hall, the university library, or the Student Center Information and Tickets desk.
