Gonzaga has contracted with two medical laboratories in Spokane to conduct testing. Professionals will be on campus regularly and will provide ongoing support throughout the academic year. Test results are typically processed within 48 hours of the test date and reported to the University Health and Counseling Center as well as the Spokane Regional Health District.

Appropriate medical follow-up, including COVID-19 contact tracing, is provided by medical staff and trained COVID-19 contact tracers at the University.

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff seeking testing are asked to contact their health care provider, and quarantine if experiencing symptoms. Report a positive test result by notifying Human Resources via an email to leaves.accommodations@gonzaga.edu as soon as possible.

Contact Tracing

Daily symptoms screening is a critical component of contact tracing. Gonzaga has hired a team of four contract tracers who work in our Health and Counseling Services department. They provide contact tracing and education on an ongoing basis and work in close coordination with Spokane Regional Health District.
