Dear NEOMED Students, Faculty & Staff,
NEOMED will provide COVID-19 tests to students, faculty and staff starting on Tuesday, Nov. 24, at the drive-up window of the Rootstown Community Pharmacy. Testing is available only at the drive-up window; walk-in patients will be re-directed to this location.
Testing is free. It will begin at 10 a.m. on Nov. 24, with the hours between 10 a.m. and noon reserved for students. Testing for faculty and staff (as well as students) will be available starting at noon and continuing until 4 p.m. Testing will continue until supplies run out.
Registration materials must be completed prior to arrival and presented to the pharmacist. Provided as an attachment is a copy for your convenience. An online registration link is expected to be available within the next 24-48 hours at the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Information page. If it is not yet posted, print out the attached PDF, fill it out, and bring it with you.
The entire process should take approximately 25-30 minutes, including time to process and share test results with the participants via text or phone call. Participants may park in the parking lot near the pharmacy while waiting for results.
I urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to help keep everyone safe.
Richard J. Kasmer, Pharm.D., J.D.
Vice President, Academic Affairs
