You should self-schedule your appointments at a Georgetown testing site through the One Medical app or website. New slots are added daily, so please continue to check the app for appointment availability. You will get your test results via a secure message in your One Medical account. 

If you have not done so already, you must sign the consent form, which authorizes One Medical to release your COVID-19 test results and your daily risk badge status reported through the mobile application to Georgetown. Failure to consent will generate a red daily badge and restrict your access to campus buildings. Georgetown will continue to comply with all applicable privacy, confidentiality, and public health laws related to collection and maintenance of testing and other health-related records. Georgetown’s public health team cannot keep our community safe without having access to this information.

Tests at the Student Health Center

Along with routine primary care, the Student Health Center is providing COVID-19 testing to symptomatic students and providing care to students with COVID-19 concerns and symptoms.

Tests for Students Living in the Neighborhoods

Students living in the Georgetown, Burleith, or Foxhall neighborhoods should get a free test on campus, by appointment. 

Visitors

Visitors to campus, including faculty and staff who are not approved to work on campus, are NOT required to be tested and should follow the Georgetown University Visitor Agreement if you need to come to campus.

If you have any questions or concerns about the testing process or the One Medical app, please contact One Medical at 1-888-ONEMED1 (1-888-663-6331) or hello@onemedical.com.

Testing Requirements for On-Campus Community Members Anchor

Testing Requirements for On-Campus Community Members

In general, if you are on campus two or more times per week, you should be tested twice each week. If you are on campus once per week or are a student residing off-campus in the Georgetown, Burleith, or Foxhall neighborhoods (“Neighborhoods”), you should be tested once each week.

Two Days Per Week

  • On-campus residents
  • Approved non-residents (faculty, staff, and students) present on campus two or more non-consecutive days per week
  • Contractors present on campus two or more non-consecutive days per week (they should be tested the weeks they are on campus)

One Day Per Week

  • Approved non-residents (faculty, staff, and students) present on campus one day per week or less, or only on campus for two consecutive days per week (e.g., those who only come to campus on Mondays and Tuesdays should get tested once per week)1
  • Students residing off-campus in the Georgetown, Burleith, or Foxhall neighborhoods

Exempt

  • Students residing in the DC area outside of the Georgetown, Burleith, or Foxhall neighborhoods not coming to campus
  • Individuals in isolation/quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test
  • Individuals with prior COVID-19 infection within the past three months2
  • Faculty and staff not coming to campus

1Approved non-residents (faculty, staff, and students) should get tested only during weeks when they are on campus. In other words, you should not come to campus solely for the purpose of getting tested when you have no other reason to be on campus that week.

2If you have previously had a positive COVID-19 test, you should not get tested for 90 days following that positive test per CDC guidelines. Please email verification of a positive PCR or antigen test or a doctor’s letter confirming you had the disease to covid19-test-results@georgetown.edu. Results of antibody tests do not qualify for an exemption from the testing protocol at this time.

Off-Campus Testing

Free COVID-19 testing is available for residents of Washington, DC. Maryland and Virginia also have testing sites available for residents.

Community members required to participate in Georgetown’s testing protocol may choose to schedule a test with a third-party healthcare provider.
