Ellume at-home test kits available free to students, faculty, staff
Emory’s COVID-19 screening program is distributing Ellume at-home COVID-19 test kits to use over the holidays, one per person while supplies last. Emory faculty, staff, and students can pick up the free kits at testing sites during screening hours. A positive test result should be confirmed with a diagnostic PCR test. Any confirmed positive test result is to be reported to Student Health Services (SHS) or the Office of Occupational Injury Management (OIM). This test is not a replacement for the asymptomatic screening test offered by Emory and does not fulfill university requirements for testing. The test may not fulfill requirements for travel. The kits expire on Feb. 28 and cannot be used after that date.
