Our lab has stated our PCR test turnaround time will be about 24-72 hours. We will be using this option and community testing sites until we get our Sofia II and can start rapid testing with 15 minute result time.

*Based on tests conducted beginning in August 2020 via campus testing through Medical Services; does not include positive tests via outside testing or primary care physicians.

** Positive Test Results are those confirmed by Diagnostic Tests performed by UCCS Health Services, or those provided to us by local health partners and confirmed by El Paso County Health. Numbers are not reflective of testing done at outside testing sites or primary care physicians so positive rates are skewed as negative results are often not reported to campus.

*** Percentage represents how many rooms of our reserved 33-room isolation space are occupied. Faculty, staff, and students who are isolating and quarantining in their home are not included in this data. Currently, in use is 1 room of our 33 rooms.

**** Positive result data includes faculty, staff and student positive results.
