STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi State University (MSU) hosted a drive-thru COVID-19 testing center Thursday where students and staff members could be tested for the virus quickly.
The University of Mississippi Medical Center and OCH Regional Medical Center teamed up to provide free testing.
MSU Chief Communications Officer Sid Salter said the university is working to utilize all facilities as in-person classrooms to maintain social distancing during the pandemic.
MSU is also using other assets like the College of Veterinary Medicine to help the community cope with the virus.
“As of today, we feel good about where we are and where we’re headed,” Salter said, “and we hope our students and faculty and staff will continue to follow the awareness guidelines.”
