TULSA, Okla. — More than 500 people have signed up for free coronavirus testing at the University of Tulsa, according to IMMYLabs.
IMMYLabs is handling the tests which will be processed at their lab in Norman.
An IMMYLabs representative told FOX23 the testing event is part of a partnership with the university and Oklahoma State Department of Health.
Those looking to get tests don’t have to show symptoms of the virus -- or be students at TU. They will just have to sign up to make an appointment online here.
Representatives say fast test results are vital in making sure contagious people don’t help spread the virus.
IMMYLabs says it could take two business days to get results, but on average they have a 24-hour turnaround time.
Tests were taken Wednesday at TU’s Reynolds Center parking lot, but additional sessions are scheduled for Sept. 14 and 16
The university started school on Aug. 24 and reported 18 active cases of COVID-19 from the week of Aug. 29 through Sept. 5.
