Bristol Community College Students and Employees Only

Bristol Community College’s Health Services holds regular surveillance testing for all students and employees at all of the college locations throughout the week. See the schedule lower on this page. This testing is for asymptomatic (no COVID-19 symptoms) students and employees to keep our college community safe. If you have been exposed or have symptoms, you cannot attend this testing. Walk-in welcome. (This is NOT the CIC testing in the Bristol parking lot)

  • Do not go to a Bristol Health Services testing site if you have COVID-19 symptoms or are a close contact. Please help to keep our health services personnel, employees and students safe. Go to a General Public testing site: www.mass.gov/covid-19-testing or portal.ri.gov.
  • IMPORTANT: Select the date to find available times. If there are no times listed, there is no testing on that day.

To enter Bristol’s on-campus COVID-19 testing site, you must be wearing a face mask. After checking in with the clinic’s staff, they will give you a tube with a swab and provide instructions. Once instructed, you will temporarily lower your mask, blow your nose and swab the inside of your nostrils five times. The swab will then be sealed in the tube and tested. Your results will be sent to your Bristol email in 1 to 3 days after testing.
