Before coming to a Virginia Tech location, please perform a self-check on your health using the Hokie Health ✔️ tool. Testing is encouraged for employees and students who regularly visit a Virginia Tech site in the D.C. area. This testing is NOT for individuals with symptoms or who think they may have been exposed to the virus.

Those who are symptomatic, believe or know they have been exposed to the virus, or have other indications or exposure, should contact Schiffert Health Center or their primary care physician to determine whether they should be tested. Testing in the D.C. area will run through the end of the spring semester classes.
