Garage 1 COVID-19 Testing

Approximately 75 parking spaces on level 2 of Garage 1 are now blocked off for the COVID-19 drive-through testing area.

During Testing Hours:

  • All traffic entering the Garage 1, level 2 entrance will be limited to COVID-19 testing, ambulances and oversize/wheelchair vans.
  • All patient traffic for clinical appointments in the lower campus will use the Garage 1, level 1 entrance and exit.
  • Staff, students, and residents should plan to use the level 6, rooftop entrance and exit of the garage, and park on the upper levels 4 through 6, while avoiding the use of patient parking areas. Parking operations and Public Safety will monitor the level 6 traffic flow and raise the gates as needed.

The testing hours range from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and may vary based on the number of daily appointments. If the ‘COVID-19 Testing’ signs are displayed on the campus roads, testing is underway.
