Tech Chosen for COVID-19 Rapid Testing Site
A parking deck on the Georgia Tech campus has been designated as the location for a new rapid COVID-19 mobile testing site in Georgia. The news was announced earlier today by federal and state governments in partnership with a national healthcare company.
The Georgia Tech Police Department and its Office of Emergency Management have assisted in site set up at 352 Peachtree Place and will manage traffic flow to keep individuals being tested isolated to one area. Logistics planning has been done in concert with state and federal health authorities who are leading this effort with CVS Health to provide an area for this testing and its required waiting period in accordance with strict health and safety standards.
Academic instruction is being held online and through distance learning until Fall semester, and campus operations have been modified to only include essential services. Given the currently reduced scope of campus operations, efficient visitor access to the test site with minimal impact on campus services is expected.
