Salt Lake City, Utah — The University of Utah is making COVID tests vending machine.
The vending machine is located in the Echols Library. It’s stocked with self-serve COVID-19 tests.
The tests provide results in 24 to 48 hours.
“It’s super convenient,” said U of U student Gabi Mortarotti. “And honestly it makes it a lot less of a hassle than having to go wait in line for hours on end.”
The university will keep its isolation time at 10 days, even though the CDC has reduced the isolation time to five days for those who test positive.
Students are encouraged to get tested weekly.
