AUBURN, Ala. (EETV)- Following a successful pilot of the testing program last week, Auburn University will launch its GuideSafe Sentinel Testing Program in full to better understand campus prevalence of COVID-19. 

Random samples of faculty, students, and staff with on-campus duties will be selected to get tested for COVID-19. While the tests are not mandatory, the university strongly encourages those selected to be tested. Data collected from testing will allow Auburn to promptly respond to potential increases in cases of COVID-19.

If you are randomly selected to be tested, you will receive an email from prompting you to create a Verily account to complete the pre-test symptoms screening and schedule your appointment. Tests will be conducted in the scholarship room of the Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum on campus and results should be available within 48 to 72 hours of the test.

Should you have any more questions regarding the GuideSafe Sentinel Testing Program, you may visit the Campus Notice or email Auburn’s COVID Resource Center at with “Sentinel Testing” in the subject line.
