Free COVID-19 testing for UWEC students
The Blugold Protocol app will guide you if you are experiencing symptoms and need a test. For all UW-Eau Claire students, COVID-19 testing is free at SHS (by appointment only) if you have:
- a temp of 100 degrees or higher
- symptoms related to COVID-19
- had contact with a person who has tested positive for the virus
Once you have an appointment for COVID-19 testing at SHS, testing is being completed at an outdoor tent located on the west entrance of Crest Wellness Center (by Sutherland Hall and the ropes course).
Antigen for students without symptoms or close contact is currently being completed at McPhee.
Students may also choose to have their personal health care provider conduct the testing. Faculty and staff should contact their health care provider if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
Receiving a positive test
All Blugolds (students, faculty and staff) who test positive for COVID-19 should inform SHS, which is working closely with the Eau Claire City-County Health Department.
Quarantine vs. isolation
All students, those living on and off campus, may be required to go into quarantine if they have had contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19. You must remain in your room in quarantine for 14 days, and you should only leave your room for a medical appointment. You must wear a mask if you leave your room for a medical appointment.
Isolation is required for students displaying symptoms who are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test. Students in isolation must only leave their room for a medical appointment, and they must wear a mask to go to those appointments. Students who test positive for the virus must remain in isolation and await further guidance from Student Health Service and/or their doctor.

Student Health Service continues to provide affordable, accessible, inclusive, and high-quality health care for all students at UW-Eau Claire.
