COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 testing is completed each day at 4 p.m. If a student, faculty or staff member needs to be tested for COVID-19, please call: 270.809.3809 to schedule a virtual visit today.

We will continue to have testing each day from 4 to 5 p.m. for all patients needing tests, but we will also offer it throughout the day if the need is there.

The University now has rapid tests which provide results in approximately 15 minutes for symptomatic students, faculty and staff at Murray State Health Services. The test will be processed through the individual’s health insurance plan and a cash pay option will be available for those uninsured. 

The first priority for testing is given to individuals who are at high-risk of exposure to COVID-19 or are displaying symptoms of COVID-19. Like all health facilities in the community, Murray State Health Services/Village Medical first asks for and accepts insurance; however if an individual cannot pay for a COVID-19 test, the University will cover these costs in full.

We also allow students to be tested wherever they wish. 

When there is a tele-visit in advance of the testing, it is to obtain key medical information about the student’s health, pre and post planning based upon the results of the COVID-19 testing for treatment and possible quarantine purposes, and the collection of data we are required to report timely.

COVID-19 symptoms may include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This list does not include all possibly symptoms. The CDC will continue to update this list as more is learned about COVID-19.

Rapid COVID Testing

Rapid tests are available at Health Services for any student, faculty or staff member with COVID-19 symptoms. Rapid test kits are also available at Village Medical main office (1000 South 12th Street – Murray, KY 42071).
