Can I request a test for COVID-19?

Medical personnel, in consultation with the state health department, will determine if an individual should be tested for COVID-19. This test requires a doctor’s order.  If you believe you have symptoms, please call the Protect Purdue Health Center (PPHC) at 765-496-INFO (4636) or 833-571-1043 (toll free) or your primary care doctor.

Faculty and staff who are experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms are advised to isolate themselves off-campus and contact a medical professional for evaluation. Telemedicine options are also available for those covered by a Purdue health plan.
