Random Testing Program
As part of MC’s continued commitment to monitor the ongoing health of the campus community, the university is conducting random weekly COVID-19 testing throughout the semester for asymptomatic students, faculty, and staff in the Random Testing Program.
Students and employees will be selected randomly and contacted by email to reserve a time for testing. Please look for the subject line in the email: Random Testing Program – You are Selected to Test.
MC has partnered with TrustCare Health, a privately-owned Mississippi based health company, to provide COVID-19 testing. The Sofia 2 SARS FIA is performed with a swab of your nasal passages to determine if you currently have an active COVID-19 infection. It is an accurate point-of-care antigen test with same-day results.
Main campus in Clinton
Testing is located in the Nursing Annex Building on West College Street. (#10 on MC’s campus map - mc.edu/map)
MC Law in downtown Jackson
Testing is located in the Advocacy Center (AC-100).
- Schedule your appointment online in advance. A calendar link will be sent in the email you receive once selected for testing.
- Once you schedule your test, you will receive an appointment confirmation via email.
- Bring your MC ID and wear a face mask to the testing site.
The process will take approximately 15 minutes.
At this time, the university has not made participation in the program mandatory.
We will select between 200-300 students per week. In addition, 20-30 faculty and staff members will be selected each week.
There is no charge to the student, staff, or faculty member to participate.
You will be contacted with additional information and guidance. We ask that you self-report to the University through the #CampusClear App.
