Employee and Student COVID-19 Testing

A new Shield T3 PCR Test Kit Vending Machine is now located in the Cafeteria Building

The CDPH encouraged sites to "maintain testing capacity at their worksite and have the ability to ramp up testing at their worksite, in the event of outbreaks or if it is required again at a future date." To that end, State Center will continue to offer free testing to anyone. In fact, we are introducing a new solution by which we will continue to provide free COVID testing to students and employees on each of our college campuses and at the District Office; new Shield T3 PCR Test Kit Vending Machines. These vending machines are now located on each campus and will be ready for use on October 10.

The free COVID Testing Centers and drive-through testing for students and employees will close on October 7. Testing will only be available through the vending machines.

On October 10, all employees and students who wish to make use of the free onsite testing option, may visit one of the vending machines, which are located on each college campus and the District Office at: 

  • Fresno City College - Cafeteria/Student Activities entrance
  • Clovis Community College - Academic Center 1/Main entrance
  • Reedley College - Student Center/Main entrance
  • Madera Community College - Administration Building/SE entrance
  • Oakhurst CC Center - Room OC6
  • District Office - 6th Floor/Outside Environmental Health & Safety Office

At each vending machine 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 PNC account to use the vending machine. Please be sure to watch THIS VIDEO for more detailed instructions. Here are additional Vending Machine Instructions.

Very important: Tests can only be submitted between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday - Wednesday, and 8:00 am to noon on Thursday. This ensures that the samples reach the laboratory for analysis within 56 hours of sample collection.

Test results will still available the same way as they are now through the Point and Click (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.
