COVID PCR Testing Available on Campus for Registered Students and Staff

Beginning October 10th, 2022, all employees and students who wish to make use of the free onsite testing option may visit the COVID-19 PCR test kit vending machine located in the Fresno City College Cafeteria/Student Activities entrance.  At that location, you will find instructions on how to use the machine, receive and register your test, and submit your test.  Your test kit must be registered to receive your results.  You will need a smart phone or mobile device to scan the QR code and log into your Point and Click (PNC) account to use the vending machine.  Very important:  Tests can only be submitted between the hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday-Wednesday, and 8:00am to noon on Thursday.  This ensures that the samples reach the laboratory for analysis within 56 hours of sample collection.  Test results will still be available the same way as they are now through the PNC system.  Remember, you cannot eat or drink anything, smoke, floss, use mouthwash, brush your teeth, or chew gum within 60 minutes prior to taking the test.  Those who are symptomatic are encouraged to test elsewhere and not come on site.  

You should not show up to work or class if exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.  If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home and contact your instructor or supervisor.  Complete the Student COVID Positive Testing Submission Form.
